    Redirects: Wildcard not working for specific patterns/urls

    We're using:

    • Umbraco 8.18.4
    • SEO Checker 2.11.2

    In the SEO Redirect manager we have a redirect set with a wildcard: /a/*

    browsing /a/ redirects perfectly. So does /a/test, /a/test-test and /a/test/test.

    But there are a couple of urls that get redirected to our 404-page instead of to the set 'redirect to' url. These urls can also be found in the inbound link errors. Most of these urls follow the same pattern: /a/b-something, but not all of them.

    Why do they not get included by using the wildcard and not get redirected to the 'redirect to' url?

    Hi Fiona,

    Because the complete url can be found directly in the inbound link errors list this will return the 404 request. Remove it there and it should be ok again.

    Hi Richard,

    This solved our problem, the urls are now redirected to the right url. Thank you!

    Kind regards,
