I try to create a redirection 301 with the redirect module. For example, I want to redirect an URL source to an internal URL through my custom module.

I want to create a redirection when I create a node. Import old content, create a new node and keep the old path.

Anyone have an idea?

    You should definitely add more information to your question. What have you tried so far? What is your exact problem? Why don't you mention the migration you mentioned in a comment to one of the answers? – leymannx Feb 8 '17 at 23:10
  • You can use below code snippets to create programmatically URL redirect. // Create an object with the redirect parameters $redirect = new stdClass(); redirect_object_prepare($redirect); $redirect->source = 'old-url'; $redirect->source_options = array(); $redirect->redirect = 'node/5'; // New system path $redirect->redirect_options = array(); $redirect->type = 'redirect'; $redirect->language = LANGUAGE_NONE; redirect_save($redirect); – Aryashree Pritikrishna Aug 1 '19 at 15:58

If you want to store redirects in database use the module Redirect. This module provides a user interface to add redirects. The redirects are stored in a content entity, which you can also create programmatically:

use Drupal\redirect\Entity\Redirect;

    'redirect_source' => 'redirects/redirect1',
    'redirect_redirect' => 'internal:/node/1',
    'language' => 'und',
    'status_code' => '301',

You can do this at the time you create nodes from imported data or you could put code in entity hooks which updates the redirects when creating, editing or deleting a node.

  • Thanks for your answer. But i want to create a redirection when i create a node. I import a old content in create a new node and i keep old path. – Romest Feb 8 '17 at 15:03

You can change your .htaccess by adding this code :

#custom redirects
RewriteRule ^old/URL/path$ http://example.com/new/path [R=301,L]
#end custom redirects

Or if you want do this in Drupal :

return new RedirectResponse(Drupal\Core\Url::fromUri('route_name'));
