Support » Plugin: Redirection » Spaces removed from target URL

    I’ve migrated a bunch of files from an old site and the Redirection plugin has made this job a great deal easier so thank you for this!

    However, I’m having an issue with a regex redirect set up which generally works very well, except for links with spaces in the URL.
    Source URL = /Core/North-Hinksey-PC/UserFiles/(.*)
    Target URL = /wp-content/uploads/old_site/$1

    Eg. I’d expect this URL
    https://northhinksey-pc.gov.uk/Core/North-Hinksey-PC/UserFiles/Files/Policies/NHPC%20Privacy%20Policy.pdf
    to redirect to:
    /wp-content/uploads/old_site/NHPC%20Privacy%20Policy.pdf
    But the redirect removes the spaces which leads to:
    /wp-content/uploads/old_site/NHPCPrivacyPolicy.pdf
    which results in WordPress showing a 404 page.

    Unfortunately I don’t know if this is a recent bug/regression, or if this has always been the case since I set the site up.

    Hope you can help,
    Thanks!
