    I clicked the wvss link, and it’s definitely redirected to the PDF. So something is redirecting it πŸ™

    If you removed our plugin, then it can’t affect the site any longer. Clearing cache is also a great step. Ruling out htaccess too. And with everything else you wrote there’s really not much left πŸ™

    I’ve checked the headers, and there’s nothing custom that would indicate how the redirect is performed, so no clues there. It’s just a regular 301.

    I’d double-check if there’s maybe a wvss folder on the server just to be sure there’s not something in it redirecting things.

    Then I’d check all WP plugins to see if there are any that are not primarily for redirecting but do have that functionality.

    If that fails, I’d temporarily rename the main WP index.php file and see if the redirect still happens. If it does – WP is not to blame. If it doesn’t, it’s WP. That would narrow the search down.

    If you have a minute, please leave a review. It’s what keeps support going. Thank you πŸ™

    Sorry to hear about the issue πŸ™

    If the plugin is deactivated then it’s not the plugin doing it. It doesn’t leave anything behind anywhere and only works while it’s active.

    I don’t know why it’s still redirecting but I’m seeing that as well so it’s not your computer cache/browser. The steps you went over are basically all the common things that could store the redirect.

    All I can think of is that maybe the host has some extra layer of cache. You might try asking them.

    Thank you very much!

    Indeed, there was a folder on the server with the same name as the URL with an HTML file that redirected to the other URL.

    Your feedback was very helpful.
