Problem with 301 Redirects

Recommended Posts

I moved an old site to processwire and want to redirect the old URLs with php-filenames to the new folders via .htaccess to match the new structure.

I tried:

RedirectMatch 301 /filename.php http://example.com/filename/

The Browser end up like this:
http://example.com/filename/?it=filename.php

Its interfering with that Processwire .htaccess rule

# ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

  # Pass control to ProcessWire if all the above directives allow us to this point.
  # For regular VirtualHosts (most installs)
  # ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
   RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?it=$1 [L,QSA]
 
If i comment that out the redirect in the URL is ok, but every Klick on a websitelink is showing the homepage.
 
Any idea how i can fix this?
Thanks

Just redirect before the mentioned .htaccess rule. But I'd also suggest looking into ProcessRedirects or Jumplinks, which are GUI modules, where you can set up redirects.

Thank you for the quick response. I already tried to apply the rule before, but same result. Is there one of the modules you can recommend?

Ok. I tried Jumplinks and it works like charm. Thanks again for the quickest support ever seen and http://modules.processwire.com/authors/mike-rockett/.

Have a nice day.

Hi Mediamar,

I'm sure you've already begun digging into the documentation, but you can use the following redirect to match all URIs using a php extension:

Source: {path}.php

Destination: {path}/

Glad you like the module. :)

      I hadn't developed a website for a while, but here we are. It's a very simple minimalist website to showcase the latest work of Dominican Artist Patricia Abreu Mota.
      Site: https://patriabreu.com
      Modules:
      Procache ❤️ Seo Maestro Profiler Pro Lister Pro ProcessRedirects
    • By Mike Rockett
      Docs & Download: rockettpw/seo/markup-sitemap
      Modules Directory: MarkupSitemap
      Composer: rockett/sitemap
      ⚠️ NEW MAINTAINER NEEDED: Sitemap is in need of developer to take over the project. There are a few minor issues with it, but for the most part, most scenarios, it works, and it works well. However, I'm unable to commit to further development, and would appreciate it if someone could take it over. If you're interested, please send me a private message and we can take it from there.
      MarkupSitemap is essentially an upgrade to MarkupSitemapXML by Pete. It adds multi-language support using the built-in LanguageSupportPageNames. Where multi-language pages are available, they are added to the sitemap by means of an alternate link in that page's <url>. Support for listing images in the sitemap on a page-by-page basis and using a sitemap stylesheet are also added.
      Example when using the built-in multi-language profile:
      <url> <loc>http://domain.local/about/</loc> <lastmod>2017-08-27T16:16:32+02:00</lastmod> <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="http://domain.local/en/about/"/> <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="de" href="http://domain.local/de/uber/"/> <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="fi" href="http://domain.local/fi/tietoja/"/> </url> It also uses a locally maintained fork of a sitemap package by Matthew Davies that assists in automating the process.
      The doesn't use the same sitemap_ignore field available in MarkupSitemapXML. Rather, it renders sitemap options fields in a Page's Settings tab. One of the fields is for excluding a Page from the sitemap, and another is for excluding its children. You can assign which templates get these config fields in the module's configuration (much like you would with MarkupSEO).
      Note that the two exclusion options are mutually exclusive at this point as there may be cases where you don't want to show a parent page, but only its children. Whilst unorthodox, I'm leaving the flexibility there. (The home page cannot be excluded from the sitemap, so the applicable exclusion fields won't be available there.)
      As of December 2017, you can also exclude templates from sitemap access altogether, whilst retaining their settings if previously configured.
      Sitemap also allows you to include images for each page at the template level, and you can disable image output at the page level.
      The module allows you to set the priority on a per-page basis (it's optional and will not be included if not set).
      Lastly, a stylesheet option has also been added. You can use the default one (enabled by default), or set your own.
      Note that if the module is uninstalled, any saved data on a per-page basis is removed. The same thing happens for a specific page when it is deleted after having been trashed.

      Hey folks,
      currently Iam working on a website for one of my clients and I need some advice on how to approach this in PW.
      The website is for a company, that offers holiday houses in two locations. 

      The client wants the homepage to show the first location. Normally I just have a home template for the first page, but here the URL should reflect that you are in Location 1. So when you visit the URL casamani.com it should redirect to casamani.com/location-1. Not sure if this makes sense at all.

      Whould it be bad for SEO and performance reasons to redirect home to the Location-1 page?
      Another approach would be to render the Location-1 template on the home template or do an include like discussed here.
      Here is how the tree looks:
      – Home
      – Location 1 (Homepage)
           – Creation
           – Adventure
           – Sustainability
      – Location 2 
           – Creation
           – Adventure
           – Sustainability

      Thanks for looking into this!

      Some context: I want to use PHP variables in my CSS (more info below) and found a solution on CSS-tricks that looks fairly elegant and somewhat solid to me. It's pretty simple, I created a file style.css.php inside the site/templates/ directory and load that in my page head. In style.css.php is the following:
      <?php header("Content-type: text/css; charset: UTF-8"); header("Charset:utf-8"); if ($homepage->hero_image) { echo <<<CSS .hero { background: url($homepage->hero_image->url) no-repeat; } CSS; } ?> Because of the following RewriteCond (line 373) in the htaccess file the server sends a 403 error back when the file is requested:
      # Block access to any PHP or markup files in /site/templates/ or /site-*/templates/ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (^|/)(site|site-[^/]+)/templates($|/|/.*\.(php|html?|tpl|inc))($|/) [NC,OR] (My htaccess file is @version 3.0 and @htaccessVersion 301)
      This is how I thought I could fix that (based on these answers on stack overflow) but it does not work:
      # Block access to any PHP or markup files in /site/templates/ or /site-*/templates/ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (^|/)(site|site-[^/]+)/templates($|/|/((?!style\.css).)*\.(php|html?|tpl|inc))($|/) [NC,OR] I tested the rule with htacess tester and htaccess check and both worked for me, but on my site I still get a 403 instead of the file.
      I'm working on localhost, using MAMP (not sure if that's relevant).
      A bit more about what I want to do achieve specifically:
      I want to use an image as a background-image for an element, not place it as an image. This image is provided by the user via a field and can therefore change.
      I know I can achieve this like this:
      echo "<section class='hero' style='background-image: url($page->hero_image->url)'></section>"; But I would prefer a method other than inlining because of scalability and cleanliness. (I admit the extra link in the page head is not ideal either)
       
      P.s. this is my first post here, I hope it's submitted in the right forum and my explanation is clear.
