    URL tracker on my sites in Umbraco 8 doesn't seem to be working. What do I need to set to get it to run? Anything in Web.Config need to be set?

    Hi Richard,

    Just to be sure, are you referring to this package?

    https://our.umbraco.com/packages/developer-tools/301-url-tracker/

    To my knowledge, Url Tracker hasn't been in active development for a while, so I don't think there is a version available for Umbraco 8.

    If you're looking for the redirects functionality of Url Tracker, my redirects package may be a viable alternative:

    https://our.umbraco.com/packages/website-utilities/skybrud-redirects/

    I think it is currently the most used redirects package for newer V7 sites and V8 sites. But it doesn't for instance handle the 404 tracking that Url Tracker did.

    Hi Anders,

    No, I mean the one that is now built into Umbraco 8.

    enter image description here

    Do I need to add anything in the config to get it to redirect? Its tracking the pages but not redirecting.

    (it wasn't a package it was just there... although I did use the starter pack on install, could it be part of that?)

    Hi Richard,

    When you say it's not working? What exactly do you mean?

    As an FYI, it is built into Umbraco so isn't a package or anything :-)

    Cheers,

    Nik

    Thanks Nik ok, just checked locally and it 'works on my machine'

    But not redirecting on the live site (although I am connected to the same DB on both local and live (naughty but its my own website :) )

    Hey Richard,

    So, are you getting 404's on pages that should redirect? Or are your getting pages served up on those urls?

    Just 404s because the pages aren't there anymore. i.e. https://www.strike3digital.com/blog

    Did you find a solution to this, I seem to have the same problem.

    When a page changes name or is moved the url is tracked. It shows up in the dashboard, but no redirect happens if I try to navigate to the old name.

    So it seems that the tracker is tracking ok, but not redirecting.
