I can’t get redirects working. I’m trying to migrate from WordPress to Webflow. The most critical thing I need is to be able to use the same URLs from WordPress. If I can’t do that, I can’t migrate my site. So, I bought the CMS plan because it has redirects. I configured the redirect, and when I hit the Url, I get a 404 error.
Let’s start with the original article:
I created a new version of it here in Webflow. You can see the working URL.
Aside from the domain name, the original URL is “/2022/04/24/code-rules/” and the page I created in Webflow has a slug of “code-rules”. So, I created a redirect from one to the other. This seems straightforward enough. Here is what I configured.
But, the redirect does not work. When I hit the URL, I get a 404. This is the URL
This is what I see
Another thing to note. This article suggests that I should include the full domain name in the redirects and that domain name should not start with a slash.
You can that in this image here:
But, the redirect config forces you to put a slash in front.
Can someone please help me to get this redirect working? If I can’t use the same URLs, this migration is dead in the water.
