For external redirects in MediaWiki CMS you can use:

  • Interwiki

  • Extensions

Interwiki

You can add certain site to interwiki and use next wikitext code as usual redirect and interwiki:

#REDIRECT [[prefix:Page_title]]

Where prefix - site prefix in interwiki table, and Page_title - variable part of URL on certain site in interwiki table.

Extensions

You can install and use special MediaWiki extensions for external redirects, such as extension "ExternalRedirect", and write wikitext like this:

{{#externalredirect: www.site.loc/home.html}}
