How to create vanity URLs or redirects

Hello, I have a question about creating multiple vanity URLs for different Categores or Boards.

Our current (non Lithium) community is on-premise, so we are able to create shortened URLs for print and marketing purposes like http://community.name.com/forum1 and http://community.name.com/forum2.

 

When we migrate to Lithium's server, are these URLs possible?

Yes, you can add the redirects in the page initialization tab in studio To add the redirects to your vanity URLs. More info here: community.lithium.com/t5/Developers-Knowledge-Base/Using-a-FreeMarker-Page-Initialization-Script/ta-p/125767

Thank you very much, @VarunGrazitti! Does this include creating brand new URLs (not just redirecting current vanity URLs)?

No, that would have to be done at server level, ask your IT team for this.

@LainieH per this thread, Lithium support can implement this for you if not too many redirects.
