Custom Links, Redirects & Sitemap

We've just released a new update for Brizy Cloud. This is a smaller update in terms of feature quantity, but a big one in terms of importance. We've added a couple of long awaited features: custom links for the menus, a way to let you redirect old URLs to new ones and sitemap XML.

I'll go through each feature briefly.

Menu Custom Links

Redirects

Sitemap XML

Redirects

The Redirects section lets you create 301 permanent redirects from your old URLs to your new ones. This is to be used in specific cases when you want to redirect a specific URL to a new URL. Here is how to create a redirect in Brizy Cloud CMS.

Step 1. Open the Redirects section in the Settings window 

Step 2. Put every redirect on a new line /old-URL [SPACE] /new-URL, here is an example for 3 different random redirects 

/home /

/shop /new-shop

/about-us /team

Let's take /about-us /team rule. This means that yourdomain.com/about-us will be redirected to yourdomain.com/team

Sitemap XML

An XML sitemap is a roadmap of your website that leads Google to all your important pages. XML sitemaps can be good for SEO, as they allow Google to quickly find your essential website pages.

Brizy Cloud creates the sitemap XML file for every project automatically and you can access your project's sitemap anytime by going to /sitemap.xml in your project.

For example, if you have a custom domain linked to your Brizy Cloud project mydomain.com, you would access your sitemap XML on mydomain.com/sitemap.xml in your browser.

Sitemap in Brizy Cloud

You don't have to do anything for Google to find your sitemap. We placed it exactly where it needs to be for Google to find it when it visits your website. 

What's coming next

We are working on a couple of important things, like Block conditions and a Sync feature for blocks and full layouts in your Brizy account. Besides these, we have a couple of new elements in the works as well: MegaMenu, Table, improved vertical Menu element and so on.

We still need some time for the block conditions and the sync feature so if we have the elements ready first we'll put them in your hands as soon as possible.

Stay in the loop with the work in progress on our Trello public road-map: https://trello.com/b/3OtE8BCR/brizy-wordpress-public-roadmap

Great things ahead.
