Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform.
Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in this documentation.
Current Release & Requirements
Current Release: 1.5.43
As of version 1.5, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run. At the time of writing this, version 3 on the development branch is also supported. However, it has not been extensively tested, and so it is not tagged for support in the modules directory. This will be done once 3.0 reaches a feature-freeze.
In the works is Jumplinks 2, which is a complete rewrite of the module that makes use of FastRoute, Composer and Eloquent. The purpose of the rewite is to make the module future-proof and provide new features, enhancements, and increase the overall speed of the module (still to be benchmarked).
You can track development on the roadmap.
The most prominent features include:
- Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another)
- Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents
- Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks)
- Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information)
- Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times)
- 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits)
Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
- Stale jumplink management
- Legacy domain support for slow migrations
- An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects)
Jumplinks is available on Github at http://github.com/rockettpw/jumplinks.
There is currently only one branch:
master, which contains the stable version of Jumplinks. The old
dev branch has been removed completely, and a new branch will be created when Jumplinks 2 reaches alpha-ready status - this should be by the end of October, if all goes according to plan.
If you stumble upon a bug, or any other like-minded creature, please submit an issue to the issue tracker on Github.
