301 Redirects with $ character


I have a site hosted through Webflow and need to set up a redirect but Webflow says I can’t use the ‘$’ character in the old path name.

The redirect pattern looks like this:

example.com/$abc should redirect to app.example.com/collections/$abc

Screenshot attached from the error Webflow gives me. I can’t think of a way to “wildcard it” that wont redirect everything to app.example…

Thanks if you have any advice!

Since webflow does not support the use of the $ character I think your only alternative is to either front end the site with Cloudflare or host externally where you have more control.
