    • Link From: This is the end of the shortened URL, what will display as the redirect, i.e. /Parade
      • Note: You will need to include the /, do not include a full URL
      • Note: For security reasons, the following extensions have been restricted from use in the redirects module: .axd and .js
    • Link To: This is where the shortened URL will go to, i.e. /78/2017-Annual-Parade.
      • A Full URL is the complete web address for a page or website. For example, http://civicplus.com/78/2017-Annual-Parade is a Full URL.
      • A Relative URL is the ending section of a Full URL. It is the part of a web address that comes after .com, .gov, .org or whatever the top level domain of your website may be. For example, /78/2017-Annual-Parade is the Relative URL of http://civicplus.com/78/2017-Annual-Parade.

A query string is the part of a URL containing data that does not fit conveniently into a hierarchical path structure. The query string commonly includes fields added to a base URL by a Web browser or other client application, for example as part of an HTML form
    • Retain Path: Controls if the path from From URL shows once the destination loads.
    • Match Query String: Controls if the redirect will require the query string to match.
