Support » Fixing WordPress » 301 Redirect Not Working

  • My 404 error log shows the following URL has a 404 hit on it:
    http://www.johnrothra.com/putins-real-endgame-russia/&description=What%20is%20Putin&

    from the user agent “msnbot-media/1.1 (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)” (no referrer in the log).

    I put this into the .htaccess but it doesn’t redirect:
    redirect 301 /putins-real-endgame-russia/&description=What%20is%20Putin& http://www.johnrothra.com/putins-real-endgame-russia/

    This format has worked fine for many other necessary redirects (e.g., redirect 301 /2008/01/15/new-bible-study-available-psalm-101/ http://www.johnrothra.com/new-bible-study-available-psalm-101/)

    So, why won’t the “putins-real…” redirect work? I need to redirect it because that URL shows up in the 404 log at least once per day.
