I’ve got a lot of hotlinking to a specific file on my site. I now need to update the file and also would like to start getting a pageview for these links rather than just letting them link directly to the download. I have created a page for this file that I’d like to redirect the links to. I installed the redirection plugin and created a custom redirect, but when I test some of the incoming links they are still linking directly to and downloading the PDF file for the user. I have been going crazy trying to figure out what’s wrong and just started wondering that maybe I need to delete the file so the link will then be “broken.” SO MY QUESTION: Does Redirection plugin only really work to redirect broken links??
