What is a good way to handle 301 redirects on the web and e-commerce side?

mod_rewrite and .htaccess are only available when hosting through Apache, but that is not a requirement. What is a good way to handle 301 redirects?

Is there a module that handles 301 redirects? Such as Drupal's Redirect module or WordPress's Redirection extension.

Otherwise, what is a good way to get an Odoo module started? Should I look at werkzeug routing?

I know this is an old post, but it is coming up on Google First Page. So I thought it might help someone else.  I had the same problem, as we often move existing websites over from other platforms. I found this module that will handle it for you.

  You can also do it with jQuery: http://www.opengest.solutions/forum/aide-1/question/odoo-comment-faire-une-redirection-de-page-301-ou-302-12

Is there any .htaccess one could write rules not to loose all old urls?


I am rewritting routes manually in the controller. But I wish I knew a better way.

    @http.route('/my-old-path-to-event/<path:oldpage>', type='http', auth="public", website=True)
    def redirect_to_event(self, oldpage):
        return werkzeug.utils.redirect("/event", 301)

What I would do if I had more time would be to add a field "oldpage_key" on the event model. Then in my controller, search if I kind find my oldpage withing my events.

I think that in order to write a module, you would need to allow configuration through the UI of the controllers.

werkzung RequestRedirect probably.

I love upvoting and accepting answers here but a 3 word answer is a bit too thin for that :)
