Hello,

Not sure if this has been answered, but I have a website in Hybris and will be migrating to Shopify. The URL redirect issue is this: A category URL is such: 

https://www.solsticesunglasses.com/collections/women%27s-sunglasses/women-givenchy  and a product URL is such:

https://www.solsticesunglasses.com/product/givenchy-7118g-shield-sunglasses/716736125602.

 

How and what would be the URL structure be redirected to? 

 

Thank you for your help.

Hey there @logan1429!

 

Shopify's URL structure for collections (aka categories) and products is quite simple. By default, collection pages will use a handlized version of the collection name (IE solsticesunglasses.com/collections/givenchy-womens-sunglasses), but you do have the option to edit each collection URL using the SEO settings. The same concept is true for product pages; a handlized version of the product name is used (IE solsticesunglasses.com/products/givenchy-7118g-sunglasses), and you do have the option to edit each product URL. Note that you cannot stop the use of /collections/ or /products/ - you can only change the tail end of the URL.

 

Shopify has built-in support for URL redirects. You can find this in the Shopify admin under Online Store > Navigation. On the Navigation settings page you should see a link for URL Redirects, like so:

On the URL redirects page you can manually add each redirect (supplying both the old URL as the 'from' and the new URL as the 'to') or you can upload a list of redirects in bulk using the import tool.

@logan1429 Hello again!

 

All product page URLs must contain /products/ and all collection (aka category) page URLs must contain /collections/. Unfortunately your proposed URL changes for the category pages will not work

Hello and thank you for responding.

So would these be better:

 

Potential new category page:

https://www.solsticesunglasses.com/collections/bottega-veneta-sunglasses

 

Potential women’s sunglass page

https://www.solsticesunglasses.com/collections/womens-alexander-mcqueen-designer-sunglasses

Can be done for men as well.

 

Potential product page

https://www.solsticesunglasses.com/products/bottega-veneta-bv0013s-007-round-sunglasses/889652056630
