We show our generic 404 page by default when a customer tries to access a broken link
Our generic 404 page
Use a Custom Page as your 404 message instead for a look that better represents your brand.
You can also set up 301 redirects if there is no matching ReadMe page. We'll check it to see if there's a redirect rule for the URL. You can use this to redirect your old non-ReadMe paths to your new site when migrating to ReadMe. Use the format "oldurl -> newurl" (for example, "/documentation/test -> /docs/test"), with one per line.
Here's some examples:
/docs/top-feature-requests -> /docs/feature-requests /docs/getting-started -> /docs/get-started /docs/ios-sdk -> http://github.com/company/ios-sdk /google -> http://google.com /old/([a-z]*) -> /new/$1 * -> /custom-error-page
Cannot redirect from Reference section
It is not possible to redirect from a hashed URL like https://readme.readme.io/v2.0/reference#api-specification but it is possible to redirect to a hashed URL
$1 (or 2, 3, etc).
If you want a catch-all, use
- Browsers cache these redirects, so changes might not work immediately
- Regexes must be a complete match, not a partial match. You can't use
$, because they're appended automatically
- Redirects are tested in order they're written, and the first match is used
- Redirects are for 404 pages only, if the page exists, it will not redirect
