Page Links To


This plugin allows you to make a WordPress page (or post or custom post type) link to a URL of your choosing, instead of its WordPress URL. It also will redirect people who go to the old (or „normal“) URL to the new one you’ve chosen.

Common uses:

  • Set up navigational links to non-WordPress sections of your site or to off-site resources.
  • Publish content on other blogs (or other services, like Medium) but have them show up in your WordPress posts stream. All you have to supply is a title and a URL. The post title will link to the content on the other site.
  • For store operators, you can link to products on other retailer’s sites (maybe with an affiliate code) but have them show up like they’re products in your store.
  • Create a „pretty URL“ for something complicated. Say you have … just create a WordPress page called „My Store“ and use Page Links To to point it to the ugly URL. Give people the new URL: and it will redirect them!


Du kannst auf Github gerne mitarbeiten (oder einen Bug melden).


  • Die Page Links To Metabox in Aktion
  • The quick Add Page Link dialog.


  1. Lade den page-links-to Ordner in dein /wp-content/plugins/ Verzeichnis.

  2. Activate the „Page Links To“ plugin.

Existing Content Usage:

  1. Edit a page (or post or custom post type).

  2. Below, find the Page Links To widget, select „A custom URL“, and add a URL of your choosing.

  3. Optionally check the box to enable link opening in a new browser tab.

  4. Save the page (or post or custom post type).

  5. Done! Now that content will point to the URL that you chose. Also, if anyone had the old WordPress URL for that content, they will be redirected to the custom URL if they visit.

Creating New Page Links:

  1. Click Pages > Add New Page Link.

  2. Provide a title and a destination URL.

  3. Optionally provide a custom slug, which will be used in creating a local redirect URL.

  4. Click Publish.


Wie mache ich es, damit die Seite nirgendwo hin verlinkt? Ich möchte sie als einen leeren (Dummy) Container nutzen.

Benutze einfach „#“ als Link. Dadurch wird nirgendwo anders hin verlinkt.

Kann das Plugin genutzt werden, so dass man Kategorien auf eine beliebige URL verweist?

Im Moment nicht. Bitte kontaktiere mich (engl.), falls du an dieser Funktionalität interessiert bist.

Meine Links verweisen auf: … Warum?

Wenn du auf eine vollständige URL verlinken willst, dann must du auch das http:// voranstellen.

Can I link to relative URLs for URLs on the same domain?

Ja. Auf /my-photos.php zu verlinken ist eine gute Idee, da das auch nach einem Umzug auf eine andere Domain noch funktionieren wird.

Activating this plugin restyled my main menu by adding "left: 85.5px". I have no idea why a plugin which is meant to redirect links would affect styling of an unrelated feature but it does. Deactivating it immediately resolves the issue, so the plugin must conflict with my (popular) theme. I see a lot of people complaining about conflicts recently in the support thread and yet there are very few answers. I asked for support and was ignored - This is a big shame as the plugin works great otherwise. Happy to change my review if the issue is resolved.

Thanks. This plugin solved a big portfolio problem with wanting to use external links in the Avada portfolio title instead of pointing to the portfolio page. Worked like a charm. You are awesome!

This saved me from having to create a cpt just for the redirect function. I know that I can use the built in WP metaboxes, but didn't want my client to have to type in metadata - this way all they need to do is put in the url they want to go to. Thanks Mark
