How to redirect category links?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am trying to redirect category links to pages but something blocks me.

I have two blog pages "People" and "Talks" which have categories relating to events we hosted. E.g.

mixer.media/talks/category/Sarajevo+2023
mixer.media/people/category/Sarajevo2023

but its duplicated content as it exists already here
https://mixer.media/events/sarajevo

As some people have spoken at couple events they show up in couple categories, so I wanted to use this as part of navigation e.g. if I click on a bio I go into the blog design so clicking the category would take user to event rather then category listing.

I have this in my URL mappings:

/talks/category/Sarajevo+2023 -> /events/sarajevo 301
/people/category/Sarajevo2023 -> /events/sarajevo 301

In the second link I already edited the category name to remove "+" - but in both cases it doesnt work.

Please advise.

Thx,
J.

Any URL that is reachable on your site (before using the URL Mappings feature) can not be used in URL Mappings. Only URLs that generate a page not found error can be used in URL Mappings.
