Help with wildcard redirect


#1

I'm trying to figure out how to set up a wildcard 301 redirect so that the url doesn't show the folder which pages are nested. In other words...

www.site.com/category/pagename1
www.site.com/category/pagename2

then becomes

www.site.com/pagename1
www.site.com/pagename2

Any help is greatly appreciated!

The correct term is called "URL rewrite".

Redirect: Server tells web browser to navigate to another location

Rewrite: Server displays a different page/script for URLs that match a certain rule

Currently Webflow hosting doesn't provide URL rewriting rule functionality. Feel free to request this in the Wish List category.

Well bummer. But thanks for the help and info.

So for an item that's within a collection, I'm guessing this means there's no way to remove the collections template's subdirectory name from the URL. Is that correct?

There is no way to do it with the project settings provided in Webflow.
