Mass / Bulk Redirects (301, 302, or any status) for Magento 404 Pages
Magento has an internal URL Rewrite Management system. Magento can automatically add redirects for new and changed categories and products. However, it can be a laborious task to add all your custom redirects and/or redirects from an old website, one by one.
How does this module work?
Optimise Web's Bulk Redirects extension for Magento allows you to upload all your redirect data as a CSV file. This module is purely CSV file based (doesn't touch the database). Consider this as an alternative to adding 301 redirects into the .htaccess file.
When a missing URL is requested, Magento's routing system will first look within its database table for available rewrites. If Magento cannot find a suitable redirect, it will present your visitor with a 404 error page. This redirect module is set to work between Magento's internal check and the 404 page. When Magento cannot find a suitable redirect, this module will try and find one. If this module cannot find a matching redirect, the visitor will then be sent to the 404 page.
There are three methods of redirects that are available. They all work one after the other. The module implements a Best Match approach. If a matching redirect is found in the first method, Magento uses it and doesn't look at the rest of the CSV file or the remaining methods.
