Is there a way to redirect to a new URL without the initial URL not being a 404?

Any help would be appreciated!

If it redirects to a valid page you won't get a 404.  

Online Store>Navigation> click on URL redirects button

Hi there!

Freddie here from the Shopify Support team, happy to help!

Unfortunately there is no way to redirect links automatically that aren't 404 error pages. That is the only way that a redirect will work, is if it's coming from a broken 404 URL. You can read more information on link redirects right here.

I hope this information helps!

That is true of Shopify but any other CMS will allow you to create redirects regardless of the status code.

I recently updated our site to a "load more" feature rather than pagination links. So I wanted to redirect all the pagination pages to the parent page but of course these pagination pages technically still exist which means I cannot redirect them!

Do you have a workaround for this?

Thanks

Why does Shopify only allow redirections coming from broken 404 URLs?

I should be able to create redirections for any url, broken or not.
