    umbracoRedirect Issue

    Hi,

    Experiencing what it seems to be a strange umbacoRedirect issue.  I currently have this as a propety on a document type with a content picker to choose the page that should be directed to. My site is structured as follows

    Content

     - English Site

         - Home

            - Some folder 1

               - Some page 1

            - Some folder 2

                - Some page 2

     - Welsh Site

     - Another Site

    The issue i've experienced is when I place on 'Some page 1' a redirect so that it points to 'Some page 2'.  This redirect affects every other page at the same level as 'Some page 1' (every page listed under 'Some Folder 1') so that every page also redirects.

    Had a look around the forum but couldnt see anyone experiencing the same, any help much appreciated.

    Hi Matthew

    what Umbraco version do you experience this issue on?

    If it's an option then you might want to consider using the 301 Moved permanetly handler instead of umbracoRedirect since it is using 302 redirects, which as you may know are only intended for temporary redirects.

    Using 4.7.0,

    Manged to solve it afterwards.  Currently using the Pro Works Redirect package http://our.umbraco.org/projects/website-utilities/proworks-redirect-page , the package has two options to redirect either a Local Redirect Location (via a content Picker) which uses umbracoRedirect or a URL.  I simply used the URL option which I guess would be used for external sites normally but it solved my problem.

    For whatever reason the Local Redirect option using umbracoRedirect wouldnt work.
