I apologize if this is a duplicate request someplace else, but I could not find an easy way to locate it if it exists, so here we go.
I want a simple breakdown how to use the fields in the URL rewrite tool, none of the answers I see give a clear cut simple answer (maybe layman terms are needed to help).
Hopefully others can find this useful as well.
Fields used in the form:
Type: Custom ID Path: ? - (best way to do this?)
Request Path: ? (is the old url slug such as /earrings/cubic-zircon/bella-gold?)
Target Path: ? - (is the new url path?)
Redirect: No - Yes (simple logic tells me - Yes?)
Description: ? (is this a note relating to why you redirected, internal purposes?)
Thank you for your help in advance on this.
