Support » Plugin: WP Original Media Path » Breaks Font Awesome 301 moved errors

  • Hi just to let you know when changing the uploads folder and placing it outside wp-content directory it breaks font awesome and stops the icons loading after checking the site with gtmetrix after a fresh wordpress install with no other plugins active it causes font awesome to redirect with a moved 301 error 2 times when loading the page, this also adds a 5 second delay to the website loading, ive tried it on a few themes and same result, if you want to test this out to replicate this exactly im using vantage free theme, like i said fresh install fresh database no other plugins at all ive tried it over and over and on various other themes that use font awesome with same results. do you have any clue how to fix this?

    Hello Mcpeanut

    The plugin does not moves the old images uploaded before installing the plugin.

    Check your .htaccess and I invite you to read this:

    My htaccess is fine and fully writeable i have plenty of custom rules in there, also there is no font awesome images in my old images folder? so there is nothing to move, it would only take you a few mins to install vantage and make use of a few font awesome icons on a test page to see the issue for yourself or any other theme that uses font awesome.

    So regarding the change media paths for old media this wouldn’t apply when there is nothing font awesome related in the uploads folder.

    I’m telling you a problem/bug when using your plugin and font awesome together that does infact break font awesome and stops font awesome from loading in wordpress when you change the uploads directory from outside wp-content folder, i have extensively checked this on fresh installs, however if i change the uploads folder and keep it within the wp-content directory then nothing breaks, it really is up to you if you take this on board and fix it. but believe me font awesome does break and stops loading with a 301 moved error on vantage for sure even without anything font awesome related being stored in the uploads folder.

    I have also started a thread on the vantage support forums to see what they say about the issue. I will also come back here to let you know what is said.

    I do not understand very well what you write.
    Can you send me URLS?
