How can i configure category url rewrite management. When user click category it leads to another site.

enter image description here

  • You cannot manage it from URL Rewrites inside Magento. Either you can implement using .htaccess or server configuration. – Ravi Bhalodia Sep 15 '16 at 11:28

The way you added cms page in "URL Rewrite Management" you can add external url too.

Create a category, in my case category ID is 3 Add a new URL Rewrite from URL rewrite management

Enter ID Path: category/3

Enter Request Path: catalog/category/view/id/3

Enter your external url in "Target Path"


  • i can't able to edit target path – Gem Sep 16 '16 at 4:25
  • So I think first you can test it in fresh magento if there it will work then problem is in your current magento. – Mayur Sep 16 '16 at 4:54
  • in fresh installation also am not able to alter target path – Gem Sep 16 '16 at 5:18
  • You can directly create menu from file and give it to external site also. But I think this is not good way in Magento so I didn't suggest. – Mayur Sep 16 '16 at 5:27
  • bro, what i need is, when user click one of my category directly redirect to new site – Gem Sep 16 '16 at 5:34
