Redirect plugin
#1
This simple plugin allows you to redirect individual pages to other pages (in the site, or external ones).

Usage:

Edit the page you want to redirect and insert this tag in the title, description or tags/keywords field:
Code:
redirect=destination

destination can be another page's slug, or an URL.

Note: if you choose to put that tag in the tags/keywords field, you may prefer to prefix it with an underscore, like:
_redirect=destination
(so that I18N Search doesn't show it in the tag cloud)

(so that I18N Search doesn't index it as a keyword)

The tag will be indexed by I18N Search, but it will not be displayed in the tag cloud. You will be able to find all redirected pages with http://link-to-search-page?tags=_redirect

Thank you, I didn't express myself well. I've edited the post.

That's an unplanned feature :-)

Sounds good.

So if I make a 'dummy' page and redirect to an external url would I have a very easy way of adding an external link to my menu?

Is there a need for this ? I was playing with adding some special advanced fields to core one of them being an alias or similar, so a page could set an alias, and not have to have a dummy page anywhere. This alias would let us possibly implement actual url slugs without modifying our core use of slug as file id etc.

Examples (well, what I needed this for):
- easily redirecting a slug that has changed but is still indexed by google (and now was showing 404)
- redirecting a page that has been moved to a different domain.

It would work, if you don't mind that the URL in the menu will be rendered as the dummy page's one.
If the external one is going to be the first or the last item in the menu, I'd rather use the 'traditional' method (inserting it in the template).

[edit] I hadn't seen your very recent post :-)

BTW there is another plugin for this, URI Redirect, but it never worked for me.

Make yourself familiar with i18n customfield plugin.
Then create a new field for external link to the page you want to redirect from the menu, give it an example name: externalurl
Then create a new template file, name it for example: redirect_template.php
Use below code inside template file
Code:
<?php
// Permanent redirection
header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
header("Location:".return_custom_field('externalurl'));
exit();
?>

All you have to do is:
1. add new page, add it to the menu (page options)
2. paste link into custom field (page options) | edit: don'g forget http:// prefix in pasted link, otherwise it won't work
3. choose external_link template for this particular page (page options)
4. Save page
