You of course need to have the "Manager" role for your Plone site.

Step by step

Go to:

Site Setup


Note, folders created with the user view of the website (TTW) won't work.

You need to create the folder as a folder and check ATFolder when you give it an Id.

In the folder that you want a redirect to be triggered, click the dropdown:

Select type to add

Script (Python)

For Id, give a descriptive short name (no spaces), leave File blank

Click: Add and Edit

Leave blank the Title and Parameter List

Copy Paste the following into the body (replacing its contents):

## Script (Python) ""
##bind container=container
##bind context=context
##bind namespace=
##bind script=script
##bind subpath=traverse_subpath
##title=Redirects to a default folder


Replace the '/projects' part with the path to the specific url you want to redirect to.

Can redirect to an external site with something like


Click Save Changes

Click the Properties tab

Change or Add the default_page property to:

Click Save Changes

Now go view that folder in the regular Plone view, publish the folder and test that it redirects.
