Redirection seems to work generally for me, but I'm confounded by one aspect.
In Options, I have "log 404 Not Found requests" checked and "log redirected requests" unchecked.
I deleted my log after that change to ensure that all I was seeing were 404s.
So, along with 404s being logged, I'm seeing some links to blog posts that work as-is being logged -- they don't trigger 404s. Why would these be logged if they're legitimate links?
