Flywheel supports redirects from the simple to the complex. The method used can vary based on your needs, so check out the options outlined below.
Flywheel automatically redirects what we call secondary domains to the site’s primary domain, including the full URL path.
This is perfect if you simply want to redirect one domain to another. For example:
You can configure redirects right from the Flywheel dashboard. This is the preferred method for most Flywheel customers.

Simple redirects – for example, redirecting one page to a different page – can be set up using the Redirection plugin. Using a plugin allows you to manage the redirects directly from your WordPress admin area. The Redirection plugin even allows you to specify a regular expression (regex) for the source url, so you can redirect entire groups of pages at once.
For more information and complete instructions on setting up the Redirection plugin, visit the developer’s website.
For more complex redirects or redirects that involve static files, Flywheel support can enable the redirects for you.
This is ideal for complex redirects and rewrites, such as those required by certain themes and plugins. This method also works best for sites migrated from other blogging platforms like Blogger, which utilize
.html in their URLs.
