Hello,

I have a question about redirections.
I've created a new collection to put all the products of 2 other collections.
Now i want to delete the 2 older collections in order to keep only the new one.
So i need to redirect all the product urls to the new one.

 

So i want to redirect all the products:
https://my-shopify.com/old-collection-1/product-1
https://my-shopify.com/old-collection-1/product-2
https://my-shopify.com/old-collection-1/product-...
&
https://my-shopify.com/old-collection-1/product-1-bis
https://my-shopify.com/old-collection-2/product-2-bis
https://my-shopify.com/old-collection-2/product-...-bis
TO
https://my-shopify.com/new-collection/product-1
https://my-shopify.com/new-collection/product-1
-bis
https://my-shopify.com/new-collection/product-2
...

 

I've read on a blog that shopify don't take regular expression.
So how I can redirect all these products?

Thanks in advance for your help

Hi @totallipservice

The answer is that you don't need to redirect Product Pages' URLs when switching them to a new collection. Shopify will automatically do it for you. 

This is also why Shopify allows you to add a product to more than 01 collection since the product page URL will be myshopify.com/products/product-name - no matter which collection it was added to.
