If you have an e-commerce website or you do maintenance for one, from time to time, you will probably want to change category of certain product, rearrange category trees or just redirect some old product page to new URL. Magento allows you to do all 301 redirects from admin panel without any need to modify the code.

Go to Catalog > URL Rewrite Management and click on 'Add URL Rewrite' button. You can choose to create URL rewrite for category, product or custom. If you choose to create it for category, category tree will be shown. Click on the category you want to rewrite. On the next page, you will be able to choose the store for which you want to create the rewrite rule in case you have multistore setup. Modify the 'Request Path' value to URL you want to point to this category. Use 'Redirection' field to set what kind of redirection will be activated for this URL. Your choice should depend on this being permanent or temporary redirection. You can use the 'Description' field for your own reference. It is good practice to describe here why this redirection is created.

If you want to redirect the product, product search form will be shown. Click on the desired product and choose the category where you want it to be shown. Now the redirection form for that product will be shown. You can set it up the same way as for category explained previously.

Last redirection type is the 'Custom' redirection. In this mode, all redirection fields are available. You must specify 'ID Path' to an unique value. This is just the identifier and is not used for actual redirection. Use request and target path to specify 'what' URL will be redirected 'where'. Other fields are the same as explained for category redirection.

Keep in mind that when adding paths you should only add part of the URL that doesn't include sites domain name.
