Teaser as Redirect page

Shared content pages can be used to create quick redirects to other pages in the CMS or on external websites.

Any regular CMS page can be created using the Redirect Template, but by using shared content, you can also build a teaser that provides more context for the visitor, and also reveals this context in a carousel or list.

How Do I Set This Up?

  1. Build a shared content page using the News Template. 
  2. Keep the Date Created (needed to support meaningful date-sorting).
  3. In Page Properties, edit the teaser title, description, and image to build a decent teaser (or use the exposed teaser at the bottom of the page).
  4. In Page Properties, Advanced tab, add a Redirect URL (can be within CMS or to and external site).
  5. You can now delete the rest of the page’s contents.
