[Resolved] 301 Redirect Plugins Not Working

  • Hi Angela,
    My first suggestion would be to check the formatting on your redirects. For my plugin (and i believe for cpanel) the format you want to use for the example you mentioned is as follows:

    Request: /2011/02/14/valentines-shmalentines/
    Destination: http://angeladigiovanni.com/2011/02/14/the-ponderer/valentines-shmalentines/

    If that doesn’t fix the problem, your web host may have some special configuration that prevents PHP from passing http headers properly. You should be able to contact them for help if that’s the case.

    I just had a thought… does it just take some time for this to work? Does google have to respider my site before this will work? Am I mistaken that it would take affect instantly?

    It should start working instantly. Any chance you have a caching plugin like WP Super Cache installed? Those sometimes interfere since they try to take top priority. If that’s the problem you can usually fix it by disabling the caching plugin and then enabling it again.

    Nope – don’t have WP Super Cache installed. What I did was regenerate my sitemap and that made the redirects take place. BUT NOW, none of my permalinks work at all – not the old structure, nor the new one… ARG.

    Any ideas?

    All is well and fixed now. Thanks for your great ideas scottnelle.
