    Redirect manger : .html redirect

    I believe I've found an issue in the redirect manager by which .html urls are somehow blocked once they've been set up in the redirect manager.

    After scanning through the inbound link errors table I could see that there were a number of .html urls that were broken. I clicked through to find that they were returning a 404 error within Umbraco. I then chose a suitable 'redirect to' url and clicked save. I then see it appear in the redirect manager and go to test it and find that it now returns a 404 higher up (not handled by Umbraco).

    So quick breakdown with examples. - 404s within Umbraco.

    Chose a 'redirect to' link in inbound link errors. > - returns 404 not handled by Umbraco and doesn't perform the redirect.

    Just wondering if anyone had run into this issue before? Or have I just missed something?

    SEO Checker version = running on Umbraco 6.1.6

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Alex,

    Works fine here on v6. but since you get an IIS exception do you have the existingResponse="PassThrough" attribute on httpErrors in web.config set?

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks for the quick reply. I've just checked the web.config and have got the existingResponse="PassThrough" attribute, so this one has stumped me.

    I've been having a look through the redirect manager UI and noticed I get a YSOD on certain pages, telling me that 'No Media exists with id '1892'' so looks like I might have imported some rogue data somewhere along the line.

    Think I'll have to delve into the database to clear it out. I'll report back once I've cleared the rogue data.
