Magento Redirect Functions

Magento Redirect Functions

Magento is the most preferred solutions for the eCommerce merchants in the current market scenario. Considering the importance of Magento’s usage, here in this article, we will see how Magento core’s inbuilt redirects function to redirect ‘url’ to a new ‘url’ in Magento.
Few of them are stated below:
You can redirect the user to any URL from any of your Magento controllers, as stated below:
In reference: “Protected function_redirectUrl($url)”

$url = " https://www.appseconnect.com/contact/ "

$this->_redirectUrl($url); 
else,
Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getResponse()->setRedirect($url);

 

In case, Magento is not redirecting to the new URL then set your redirecting URL and then call function send response().

Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getResponse()->setRedirect($url)->sendResponse();

 

On other hand, you can simply pass URL path instead of full URL mentioned in the table below:
This is in reference to the “protected function_redirect($path, $arguments = array())”

$path = "contact-us";
$arguments = array('insync1' => 'value1');
$url = Mage::getUrl($path, $arguments);
$this->_redirect($path, $arguments );
Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getResponse()->setRedirect($url);

 

Here you can even redirect to internal success page:
This is in reference to the “protected function _redirectSuccess($defaultUrl)”

$this->_redirectSuccess($successUrl);
// note: it should be internal url otherwise it will redirect to base url

 

You can also redirect to internal error page like;
This is in reference to the “protected function _redirectError($defaultUrl)”

$this->_redirectError($errorUrl);
// Note: it must be internal url

 

Now, you can redirect to referrer URL:
This is in reference to the “protected function _redirectReferer($defaultUrl)”

$this->_redirectReferer($refererUrl);
// $refererUrl is only used if no referrer found, otherwise it will redirect to original referrer

 

For your information, functions used above will appear on the source file.
