Explanation and Purpose of Server Redirect Shortcut URLs

These server redirect shortcut URLs were created so "/core", "/instr", and "/org" can be eliminated from URLs used in print projects (brochure, flyer, catalog, class schedule, banner, marquee, etc.).

A server redirect is accomplished with a RewriteRule command in the Apache httpd.conf file on the web server.
