How to Redirect a WordPress Page to a URL

A page in WordPress can be easily redirected to a URL without using a plugn. It just requires a little knowledge of HTML. In the Title of the page, add <a href > code which points to the URL that you want to display.

On my blog, I created a Forums page which has the following code in the Title:

<a href=’’>Forums</a>

Forums is the actual page title that will appear on the blog (see image below).

This is not an approved method of redirecting UR’s with WordPress and it may not work with all themes. You can include target=’_blank’ if you want to open the page in a new window instead of overwriting the current window.
