Simple 301 Redirects
Redirect PDFs (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm trying to use this plugin to redirect a pdf file, ie:

    /wp-content/uploads/2010/10/oldfile.pdf

    TO

    http://www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/newfile.pdf

    It does not work. I tried editing the .htaccess file as well directly, but that also does not work.

    Can this be achieved with this plugin or otherwise?

    Thank you,
    Kelley Rao

    Hi Kelley,
    Does the file still exist on the server? If so, WordPress will not process the request and therefor the plugin will never see it. Try moving, renaming, or deleting the old file.
