We might want to redirect a visitor to another URL or article.

Ideally this is done via a .htaccess so that a proper 301 code is generated, but we might not have access to the web server configuration.

In Elegant we’ve included a redirect slug in the yaml preamble that allows to specify a target URL, that will be load with a http-refresh:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL={{ article.redirect }}" />

The actual code to define a redirection in an article is to include redirect in the yaml preamble:

Title: Article redirection
Slug: article-redirect
redirect: https://pelican-elegant.github.io/

When the article loads, it will refresh to the new URL defined in redirect, allowing you to still provide search engines and users a way to get to the new article.
