Trailing Slash Links Not Redirecting/ Broken Links (4 posts)

    I'm using the most recent version of WordPress and the Redirection plugin.

    I set up this link:


    to redirect to this link:


    I'm finding though that this link does not redirect:


    It goes to a "Page not found" page.

    However, my standard pages (not redirections), like


    Both work and the trailing / is removed, so it finds the right page.

    Do I have to create redirection with and without the trailing / so none of my links break to use the Redirection plugin or is there a quick fix for this problem?

    I'm not sure if this makes a difference, but because I moved from blogger 3 years ago and don't want broken links, my permalinks are set to /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%.html and don't have a trailing slash.

    Thanks so much!

    This is is huge problem for us as well. It's actually a reason to stop using the plugin. There is no reason the plugin should force use of a regex or 2 redirects to handle the trailing slash.

    Check the Regex option and enter the Source URL as regular expression: /all-you-magazine-coupons-april-2012/?

    Thank you so much! I've used the solution of adding both non trailing and with trailing slash as Source URL before but with your help. that worked!
