This exact question has already been asked here:

URL Rewrite resetting "Permanent" redirects

But it hasn't been answered yet. This is my first time on this site and I wasn't sure if I should ask a whole new question or 'answer' the other question with the same question.

Basically, I set up URL Rewrites for my some of my categories but they get reset on indexing and (possibly) when I modify categories.

Can somebody please tell me the best solution to this?

Here's what I did for my site:

  1. Edit URL rewrite for your new category by setting Re-direct to Permanent

  1. Add New Custom URL Rewrite

  • Thank you so much! I was following someone else's advice which was to delete the original system URL Rewrite. Your solution of creating a custom Rewrite that works in conjunction with the original system one, works great! Jul 28, 2015 at 5:14
