    I believe this will be fixed by the upcoming version as I wasn’t able to reproduce it as described. I’ll mark this as resolved, and will add a note when the version is ready so you can confirm.

    Hi John,

    thanks a lot, but by some reason I still encounter the same problem with 4.1 beta in my test installation. Is there any way to check if the original URL is passed to redirection plugin for verification, or if another plugin “grabs” the original URL first and than throws an error due to download link not existing anymore? Maybe either be woocommerce itself (providing the download link) or Waterwoo plugin which is used to watermark our downloadable PDF documents on the fly kicks in first.

    My installation has the following list of active plugins:

    Is it possible to provide a working URL to test against?

    It is possible that something else is interfering with the redirect. If suitable for your site then you could temporarily disable all other plugins and see if anything changes

    Hi,

    now as V4.1 is available I can provide a URL on production environment, sorry for the delay:

    I have configured following URL-Source for redirection:
    /?order=wc_order_ndasfdsafe5G0
    using “Ignore all parameters” option to match also in case URL contains additional parameters besides order number shown above.

    Target URL is our start page https://raetseldetektive.de

    When using an URL containing all parameters of the original Woocommerce download link except email parameter, redirect is working as expected:
    https://raetseldetektive.de/?download_file=111&order=wc_order_ndasfdsafe5G0&key=5adsfewadf-03f8-40db-aced-69bd011cdb3c

    But once the email parameter is included, I get an error message about a not valid download link: https://raetseldetektive.de/?download_file=111&order=wc_order_ndasfdsafe5G0&key=5adsfewadf-03f8-40db-aced-69bd011cdb3c&email=test@example.com

    Unfortunately I can not switch off Woocommerce plugin, but I am now pretty sure that somehow Woocommerce is grabbing the URL before redirection plugin kicks in, once the URL includes the email parameter.

    So most likely it’s not a bug of redirection plugin, but an inter working issue with Woocommerce.
