Hi i've modified a page url to my page name. I've also changed the url link present on my navigation menu eg: I've changed the page url about-magento-demo-store to about-us. But when I click on the link it doesn't work and it keeps on redirecting me to my shop homepage.

I've re-indexed it so many times and flushed my cache but it still doesn't work.

Can anyone help please?

Try to make change in following config

System > Configuration > Web > Search Engines Optimization

Use Web Server Rewrites to No


1) Go to the database then truncate core_url_rewrite.

2) Reindex direclty via admin panel Or ssh like this: php -f shell/indexer.php reindexall.

3) Refresh your Magento and navigator cache. It should work and you will no longer have your error.


The cms page has been redirected temporarily to the home page, please check these:

  • System > Configuration > Web > URL Option and change Auto-redirect to Base URL to No.

  • System > Configuration > Advanced check if Mage_Cms is not disabled

  • I've tried it as said but still no luck...all my categories links are working but not the new pages links created by me for reference you can visit my site eshopportal.com, there you can see on the top navigation menu...i've added about us page but it is not working. Whereas contact us page is working

Thanks for all your help guys, I've fixed this issue. Actually i've installed an multi-seller extension which was causing the redirection problem. I've contacted the developer and my issue was fixed by changing a small line of code.


One another thing that you need to remember is if you're site is accessed on https like


You should also make sure that the base Link URL should be on https too. Otherwise Magento .htaccess rules will redirect you back to the Base Url

So the bottom line is URL Base Link under system - configuration - web - HTTP should be https://www.yourdomain.com/

After this clean / refresh your cache and reload your pages, This time magento wont reidrect you to home page.


If you dont want to do this, then you need to change the .htaccess rules as shown in this SO thread https://stackoverflow.com/a/25528651/777103
