How to redirect from permalinks?

Hello…

I need to redirect some URL that I do not know HOW a user linked from other site.
Example: Discourse Meta (that will be 404 error)

How to redirect to an existing topic id?

I tried /admin/customize/permalinks but does not work.

I hope you can understand me.
Thanks.

@SidV permalinks are what you are looking for… if you wanted to create a permalink for the example URL, you’d enter just t/howto-redirect for the URL (without the transport protocol and (sub)domain name) and then choose the topic ID number you want it to point to.

I tried that, but did not work.
I tried redirect external url too, didn’t work :frowning:

Can you tell use what discourse version you’re using, as well as the exact values you are entering into the fields for the permalinks?

Versión v1.8.0.beta8 +57

From:
t/entregado

To:
Topic #14

But, if you enter to my forum: url.com/t/entregado did not work, and shows 404 error.

Excuse me for the dump to this topic again.

Can someone give me an example of how you configured this part?

Yes, that works only for categories.
But not in my case.
