Setup performant HTTP Status Code Redirects from within the Kirby Panel.

Kirby 3 Redirects can redirect any request URI to any response URI. It can also handle querystrings and regex.

Similar Plugin

  • kirby-retour but it can only handle Kirby Routes. It is the better choice when updating a Kirby 2 project or creating a brand new Kirby 3 project.

Works well with

  • CSV Plugin to help you import and export data to the redirects structure.

Commercial Usage

Support open source!

This plugin is free but if you use it in a commercial project please consider to sponsor me or make a donation.
If my work helped you to make some cash it seems fair to me that I might get a little reward as well, right?

Be kind. Share a little. Thanks.

  • unzip as folder site/plugins/kirby3-redirects or
  • git submodule add site/plugins/kirby3-redirects or
  • composer require bnomei/kirby3-redirects


Add the plugin-redirects section to your site.yml and add redirects in the panel.


  # ...other sections
    extends: plugin-redirects3xx

If you need all http codes you can use extends: plugin-redirects instead.


In the structure field or using the provided site methods add Request-URIs fromuri like

  • projects/cool
  • projects?id=123
  • projects/cool.html
  • projects\/.*\.html
  • blog\/(?P<year>\d{4})_(?P<slug>.*)\.html

and set Response-URIs touri like

  • projects/changed-slug
  • https://exter.nal
  • blog/$year/$slug

as well as a HTTP Status Code code like 301 or 302.

This makes it the ideal choice when porting a non Kirby project.

Site Methods

The site methods appendRedirects and removeRedirects allow you to programmatically change the redirects table (if stored in a Page/Site-Object).

// add single item
$success = site()->appendRedirects(
    ['fromuri'=>'/posts?id=1', 'touri'=>'/blog/1', 'code'=>301]

// add multiple items with nested array
$success = site()->appendRedirects([
    ['fromuri'=>'/posts?id=2', 'touri'=>'/blog/2', 'code'=>301],
    // ...
    ['fromuri'=>'/posts?id=999', 'touri'=>'/blog/999', 'code'=>301],

// remove single item
$success = site()->removeRedirects(
    ['fromuri'=>'/posts?id=1', 'touri'=>'/blog/1']

// remove multiple items with nested array
$success = site()->removeRedirects([
    ['fromuri'=>'/posts?id=3', 'touri'=>'/blog/3'],
    ['fromuri'=>'/posts?id=5', 'touri'=>'/blog/5'],
    ['fromuri'=>'/posts?id=7', 'touri'=>'/blog/7'],
