How to: Handle legacy URLs

If you migrated to Web Cube from a different platform it's very likely that users are still trying access some of the old URLs. To fix this Web Cube keeps track of all the legacy URLs the users are still trying to access and allows the creation of redirects to the appropriate URLs. 

 

To see a list of legacy URLs your users are still trying to access go to:

 

1. Click on the CMS tab.

3. To see the legacy URLs with the most hits click on the Hits table header to sort the records in descending order. For more details click on the URL of your interest.
