Online store list. In the
Navigation section, you will see the
URL redirects with the link symbol right below the page’s title. 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.

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.
