Usage, Configuration and Setup
After opening up the Source Redirect Admin Area, you will notice multiple links (Pro) for the different redirection types. Go through each link and set your various web address URLs that you require and leave blank the items that do not need to be redirected. Once done, hit the save button and do a force refresh on your website front-end and that should be it!
On each page you can set whether to only redirect the home page (great for forums and specific deeper site content), set whether you wish to disable that redirection type and you can also set a global redirections for all versions of that type. For each of the types (Mobile, Browser and Geo) fill in the redirection URL addresses as needed after completing the setting mentioned above. Leave each option blank to override redirection for that type.
Geo Country / State Location
This area is a bit more powerful. Once in this section, click “Add Another Country / Add Another Region” to open up a new redirection row. Then search for the Country / Region, add the destination redirect URL address and press “save changes”. Oncesaved you can also click remove to remove any setups you do not like. Please note United States regions only supported at present!
Frequently Asked Questions
I can only see the browser redirection in the backend, where the other options?
You are using the standard free option – you need to get the Pro version for the other options.
My site now gives an error like “too many redirects”
The redirection is looping. What this means is that you have a redirect on that page and have another redirect conflicting. This could be a htaccess file error, or an SEO plugin conflict. Try temporarily disabling your htaccess or other plugins till your site loads fine so you can find the culprit.
All browsers/countries/devices go the same redirect page.
Check your Source Redirect Site Plugin settings, each tab has an option to redirect all types – make sure that is set to “no” to enable individual redirection.
How do I make the redirect back to normal for Mobile users?
You need to create a link on your site for mobile users, with the target URL as follows: http://[YOURSITE]/?redirect_bypass=1 this will let mobile users return to the base normal looking site.
