Best practice - Migrating old wordpress media files to webflow (301 redirects)

We are looking to migrate our old websites news and insights pages (a lot of them contain ‘Download PDF’ buttons which link to the documents wordpress media centre URL.

We have uploaded all the PDFs and created a list of their old and new URLs. However, when I setup 301 redirects the existing links do not point to the new location. Can someone clarify if we will need to go in and manually update each of these pages with the buttons to their new media centre url?


When you say you’ve uploaded all of the pdfs, I’m assuming you’re using Webflow hosting and the new links use the “link-to-file” method. Is this correct?

Is the new site currently published using your domain?

Possible to send an example of the new pdf page and the 301 redirect settings for the old address?
