I want to visit Showcase Pro theme’s demo site. In my browser (Chrome), I start typing
demo and the browser history suggestion list shows me something like:
I change the last part of the URL from
showcase and hit return.
The result is a page in Maintenance Mode (in this case) or usually, a Page Not Found because Showcase is a third party/community theme and the theme demo is hosted by/on the seller’s page and not on StudioPress’.
So to get to the demo page, I have to go to http://my.studiopress.com/downloads/, search for Showcase, click on the button to view Setup Instructions, locate the link and click on it. Way too much work! (at least for me, where I open a number of theme demos every day as I write tutorials on customizing Genesis)
Use a Chrome extension called Redirector and set up redirect rules to have Chrome auto redirect https://demo.studiopress.com/showcase to https://showcase.designbybloom.co/.
If you’d like to set up redirects for all third party Genesis child themes as detailed earlier, follow the steps below (you only need to do these once).
Install Redirector extension in Chrome.
Click on the extension’s icon in the browser bar > Edit Redirects > Import.
Import this file.
Here’s the list of redirects included in the above file:
https://demo.studiopress.com/gallery > https://gallery.designbybloom.co/
https://demo.studiopress.com/showcase > https://showcase.designbybloom.co/
https://demo.studiopress.com/foodie > https://foodiepro.com/

You can set up simpler redirects like
http://showcase as well if you wish.
