CakePHP - Redirect Routing


Advertisements


Redirect routing is useful when we want to inform client applications that this URL has been moved. The URL can be redirected using the following function.

static Cake\Routing\Router::redirect($route, $url, $options =[])

There are three arguments to the above function −

  • A string describing the template of the route.

  • A URL to redirect to.

  • An array matching the named elements in the route to regular expressions which that element should match.

Example

Make Changes in the config/routes.php file as shown below. Here, we have used controllers that were created previously.

config/routes.php

<?php
   use Cake\Core\Plugin;
   use Cake\Routing\RouteBuilder;
   use Cake\Routing\Router;

   Router::defaultRouteClass('DashedRoute');
   Router::scope('/', function (RouteBuilder $routes) {
      $routes->connect('/generate2', ['controller' => 'Tests', 'action' => 'index']);
      $routes->redirect('/generate1','http://tutorialspoint.com/');
      $routes->connect('/generate_url',['controller'=>'Generates','action'=>'index']);
      $routes->fallbacks('DashedRoute');
   });
   Plugin::routes();

Execute the above example by visiting the following URLs.

  • URL 1 — http://localhost:85/CakePHP/generate_url

  • URL 2 — http://localhost:85/CakePHP/generate1

  • URL 3 — http://localhost:85/CakePHP/generate2

Output for URL 1

Output for URL 2

You will be redirected to http://tutorialspoint.com
