Step 1: Pick a URL

You have to sign in your account on Shopify first and go to the Online store after that. It will automatically move to Themes page but you need to open Navigation.

Press on it to show all of your redirects. Decide which one you want to edit and select it. For example, I want to adjust the first URL then I will choose it.

Step 2: Make adjustment

The details of the redirect will appear that you can replace the old content with the new one. You can change the information in the box of Redirect from or Redirect to or both of them. Moreover, the link added in the space can be the full URL (for example, http://www.example.com/collection/shirts) or just the relative one (for instance, /collection/shirts). Based on the purpose of your uses, you can choose whether to put in the full or the relative link. If you redirect outside the primary domain of your page, use full URL meanwhile fill in the relative link if others.

Follow my example in the previous step, the picture above shows you my editing for the Redirect to section. It is /shop/for-women/dress at first but I change it into /catalog/for-women/dress.

Step 3: Choose Save or Save redirect

After making the adjustment, you need to store it and there are two ways for you to do it. The first way is to scroll down to the end and choose Save redirects. The second one is to select Save on the top of the page. Once you make changes, the system can recognize it and remind you of Unsaved changes. Hence, you can press on that button to end the action. Besides, if you click on Discard or Cancel, everything will go back to the old version and you have to fulfill it one more time then don’t choose the wrong button.
