sphinx-reredirects is the extension for Sphinx documentation projects that handles redirects for moved pages. It generates HTML pages with meta refresh redirects to the new page location to prevent 404 errors if you rename or move your documents.

Good URLs are never changing URLs. But if you must, sphinx-reredirects helps you manage redirects with ease and from the single place in project’s conf.py. For example, if you rename document start to intro, and tell it to sphinx-reredirects, it will generate HTML page start.html with <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=intro.html">. The extension supports wildcards and moving to different domain too.
