Redirect and URL aliases

It's easy to add URL Aliases and redirects in Impact Stack. For your Impact Stack installation, you would go to: 

Manage > Advanced Settings > Site settings
Search for URL Redirects or URL Aliases and click "add"

Difference between alias and redirect

Alias lets you choose a nickname for your page, meaning a new URL that points to the content the same way the original URL does (that also means only <MyImpactStackSubdomain>.org/* URLs are possible), while a redirect is a signpost to the next URL, the URL does not point to the content but to the original URL, which then points to the content.
Inside the CMS make sure to use only aliases, as combined usage of aliases and redirects can make very funny things, that mostly end up in 404 pages or endless loops ;-)
