Custom Routes Will Not Work For Me...Help

I want to re-route my "Apply for Membership" button to a URL outside of Vanilla (an aMember payment form). For the "Route Expression" I have tried:

2) /entry/register&Target=activity
3) /entry/register

I use the full URL for the target and 301 for the type.

Nothing works. What am I doing wrong?

    Have you tried via htaccess. I guess it will be easy that way.

    By the way, you should upgrade to latest version of Nebula theme.

    It depends on what you route I think, I found that popups do not work with pretty urls, it goes 404. To use full urls in the routes I believe you must escape the characters but not sure on the procedure.

  • Can someone besides aery try to answer my actual question. I appreciate the other ideas, but they don't address my problem. @Aery I can't do it via .htaccess because my pretty urls do not work and therefor come up as index.php?p=/entry/register&Target=activity instead of an actual URL which I suspect is part of my problem. If I had the actual URL then I could make it work I'm sure. Trying to enable pretty URLs breaks my site.

    entry/register(/.*)? ->

    Permanent (301)

    grep is your friend.

    Try this pattern:


    Also, are you using SSO? jsConnect has this redirect option built in.
