I have a bunch of redirects in place for some old URLs that contain spaces, and the Redirection plugin does not seem to be handling them how I’d expect.
For instance, let’s say my old URL is /Ultraspecial Systems.html
and I want it to redirect to:
When I input the “source” URL, I tried it using the %20 in place of the space, like so:
…but this does not seem to get picked up when someone hits that old URL. The user sees the 404 error (and it gets logged in Redirection as a 404) instead of redirecting to the new page I’ve created.
If I leave out the %20 in the source URL like so:
…it displays the URL just like that in the Source URL input field, but strips out the space in the link in the Source URL label element, so the link it’s targeting is actually
…which is incorrect.
What’s the proper way to input a URL with spaces so it redirects successfully?
