Page redirection with 301
Be able to input old addresses and redirect them to new url, as Magento has. This can help move old categories, product and/or pages.
It would need to have:
1. Input old url
2. input new url
3. Choose between permanent (301) and temporary (302) redirect.
if you change the url of something then its ex url will lead to 404 error, while it must 301 redirect to new url as it is done in the majority of leading shopping carts (e.g. magento). Otherwise some valuable incoming links become useless
Released in v4.2.1

The link posted by admin is not working
This should have been a core function years ago. You spend countless hours building back links to product and category pages. Someone goes in and updates the product or category names and boom all link juice is gone. IMO when an seo URL is changed whether it is a product, category, brand or info page a 301 redirect should be created by default. There should also be the ability to upload 301's from a text file. This may be a deterrent for anyone coming from another ecommerce store/platform. I realize that you can do this by editing an .htaccess file, but for most this is not an option.
It will be a nice function that gives lots of SEO boost.
Considering the third party add-ons; I personally will skip with that due to low Quality.
I recently bought one add-on ($85) and it’s totally useless.
So, this function should be available in CS-CART by default.
i have paid cs cart to do this and it works very well so they can do it
