I need help regarding the best and easiest method for redirecting old permalinks from my old website (using ID based links) to my new website using SEO optimized links.

I would appreciate a PM alternatively we can continue the discussion here.

TIA
If you're using wordpress, there's a great plugin called Redirection that you can try. I've been very happy with it.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

What's it called when a URL has multiple levels?

https://www.dansdeals.com/
https://www.dansdeals.com/airfare-deals/
https://www.dansdeals.com/airfare-deals/israel-flights/

I'm trying to get it to work on Wix, but it keeps on trying to make everything https://www.dansdeals.com/whatever.

I imagine I'm going something wrong, but I'm having no luck finding an answer because I don't really know what exactly to search for.

I think it's called subdirectories.

Bingo, thanks!

Got my answer too - Wix doesn't support it. Oh well.

my idea how to make in WordPress like an iframe which keeps the original top navigation header of my site, and shows the linked website under my website so the user can come back easily. I see some sites block iframes. Or any other idea on how to implement an easy come back to the original site?

In the past I used this plugin and it worked fairly nicely
https://wordpress.org/plugins/auto-iframe/

(iframes are always a little clumsy though)

Depending on how the "linked website" is made it may end up being worthwhile to replicate your wordpress header and style over there.

I'll start:
I have a WP website and recently when I try to visit one of the pages I get the following message: This webpage has a redirect loop.
 Anybody have advice on how to fix this. I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to website development, so any help in layman's terms will be appreciated.
TIA

If there is no redirection loop on the server-side, the problem is likely to be solved just by deleting cookies.

Any idea of a WordPress plugin that lists links to websites by category or alphabetical filter? I need in backend a simple place to add links and categories next to them and user should be able to sort that list by category or alphabet. If there is more than 1 category, display that link twice under their respective category if sorted by category.

Is there a way to have a pdf that is hosted on wordpress to open in the browser - like a preview, instead of downloading? Issue is mainly on mobile

I'm pretty sure that's a browser specific feature, not necessarily anything to do with how it's hosted.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I've seen it done with pdfs that are hosted on google drive, nothing to do with browser settings

You should be able to embed it in the site. (perhaps using GDrive)

IIRC there are wordpress plugins that can open the pdf in a modal on the page

Thanks for the responses.
I'm not looking to embed, just for the pdf file to be previewed on its own in the browser

So why not make a separate page with it embedded?
