Turning off the remap manager?

(James) #1

Hi, We have around 20k remaps. As we’re moving sites about as part of an upgrade it’s generating thousands more so I’ve temporarily disabled it. Could we leave it off? Are there any issues if we do, other than people will manually have to add remaps if they move assets about in future (hopefully they won’t). Any advice much appreciated.

You can leave it off and turn it back on again later, doesn’t affect anything other than no automatic remaps will be created simply as that. You could maybe also have a message on your 404 page as such and try and do an auto-search on that page using the URL parts to see if it manages to find the new page for the user that way.

Hi Bart, Much appreciated. How would I set up and ‘auto-search’ please? Is this a new feature?

No, not a new feature, you just use the search page’s stored search feature: https://matrix.squiz.net/manuals/search/chapters/search-page#Details-Screen_stored-search

Which basically means you can pass in a search query by default without needing the user to input something, and the search page will return results on that straight away.
