How can I specify Paths to be skipped (Redirect)?

  • I’m using a Danish translation of WordPress, “<>” below indicates that I’m not sure if I’m using the English word used in standard WordPress.

    That aside, how can I specify Paths to be skipped by the redirecter?

    Background:
    I’m trying to use a static page (not <recent posts>) as the frontpage, this page is called “Test1”.

    This works well, except that I have to inactivate the Permanent Redirect (v0.7.0) Plug-in.

    If the redirect is active, then I get this error (Firefox) when I go to my site:
    “The page isn’t redirecting properly
    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.”

    Appearently the “Paths to be skipped” (in “Permalink Redirect Manager”) does not solve the problem (tried both “.Test1.” and “Test1”).

    The name of the page, Test1, has never been changed.

    There is no problem with redirects if I use <recent posts> for the frontpage.

    I I have searced in the forums and google, btr have not been able to find a similar problem, or a solution.

    If this problem is solved, then I expect an additional problem: “Test1” is only used as an example – what I really want as my frontpage is “mysitename”.dk/mypage1/mypage1, so “mypage1” will be both the pagename and part of the path to the page. Would this cause problems with the “Paths to be skipped”?

    thanks in advance & best regards

  • Further to previous post:

    By “static page” I meant “WordPress Page”

    I use this permalink structure : /%postname%/%post_id%/
