There was a time when anonymous links would act as redirects. To enable the behaviour it was a matter of changing the value of portal_properties > site_properties > redirect_links in the ZMI.
I'm not seeing how to achieve similar behaviour in Plone 5.
For now I'm using a TTW Python script (just save it as whatever you want as your "redirect_name" and in the script change "redirect_here" appropriately).
## Script (Python) "redirect_name"
##title=Redirects to a location listed here
this is based on these notes:
The code is still there, but now you have to look at the registry:
Hmm... so this needs to be brought forward somewhere in the interface.
please open a new issue and mark it as regression; this should be fixed in both, Plone 5.0 and Plone 5.1.
@hvelarde thanks for the feedback, the code you posted was enough of a clue to send me looking at the Content Settings.
It turns out that there is a way to enable link redirection already.
Under Site Setup > Content Settings
Select the (1) Link content type then check the box that says (2) Redirect immediately to link target
