Simple 301 Redirects
Plugin not working consistently between pages (2 posts)

    Hi.

    I am trying to use this plugin to redirect non-www pages to www pages. This plugin works on fine on some pages but not for others pages. For example:

    For the request field I put:

    /2010/08/29/Day1-%E2%80%93-preparation/

    and for the Destination field I put:

    http://www.example.com/2010/09/29/Day1-%E2%80%93-preparation/

    and this redirects successfully. However if I put:

    /about/

    and

    http://www.example.com/about/

    I get the following error from Firefox: "Redirect Loop - Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."

    I don't see the difference between the two examples and why the second one doesn't work.

    Note that for the above, those are actual links that I am using other then that I changed my actual website name to example.com for this post.

    I get the same error with the following:

    /tag/toronto/

    and

    http://www.example.com/tag/toronto/

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    TH

    Hi, again.

    I did a Google search on my pages and to test things out and found out my first example above is actually not redirecting either. The web address it lands on is http://example.com/2010/09/29/Day1-%E2%80%93-preparation/ i.e. without the www.

    So nothing is working now. I'm totally lost.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.
