Feature request: add page redirection support

Reported by dleffler | November 5th, 2016 @ 10:50 PM | in 2.4.1 (closed)

It would be nice to have some sort of redirection management to include logs of missed 'pages', and the ability to assign alternate names to pages, and another log of page requests that have been redirected. Useful if you rename a page so you don't have to go into Google Tools to setup a 301 redirect manually. There are plugins which do this in WP.

This could be accomplished in expRouter->routePageRequest() after we fail to find the page (by name), the store product (by sef_url) or store category (by sef_url) and before we return 'false'. It would probably require up to 3 tables where each 'missed page' (404) would be logged into the table, a 2nd table would contain the redirect mapping, and a 3rd table would contain a record of the page (requests) actually redirected (301) through the mapping table (might be included in table 1)

This might be further extended to include redirection of a local sef_url to an external (long) link, but we wouldn't want to pass a 301 redirect in that case.
