    Currently when I redirection is triggered by Rank Math’s redirections the X-Redirect-By: WordPress is added to the headers.

    Isn’t it should be X-Redirect-By: Rank Math?

    Because using the the term ‘WordPress’ is generic and we can not distinguish what caused the redirection.

    Hello @dibbyo456

    Upon checking further, it seems like we already have that in place (sorry for missing this out at the first place). Please check the following file:

    Hi, thank you for the update. But unfortunately it’s not working.

    I have tried,

    add_filter( 'rank_math/redirection/add_redirect_header', '__return_true' );

    also tried,

    add_filter( 'redirection/add_redirect_header', '__return_true' );

    I’m still getting X-Redirect-By: WordPress


    The filter is not necessary – as true is its default value, you have to use the filter only if you want to disable the header.

    I have tested this and it is working correctly for me – Rank Math SEO is the value of the X-Redirect-By header. Are you sure the redirection you are looking at is handled by Rank Math and not another plugin?
    You can also try disabling other all plugins, to rule out possible plugin conflicts, and switch to a default theme like Twenty Nineteen to rule out a theme issue.

    Also, please make sure to use the latest version of both Rank Math SEO and WordPress core.

    Let us know how that helps.

    I have tested it multiple times. I’m still getting X-Redirect-By: WordPress and yes i’m using everything latest version. I’m using NGINX but I don’t think that’s an issue because the header is set by PHP not .htaccess


    That is rather unusual. Could you please head over to our support forums and open a new ticket about this? https://support.rankmath.com/

    Please include your site URL in the ticket, and the URL of a redirected page. Our moderators will assist you.

    Thank you.
