I'm having weird redirect issues
If you’re having redirects you can’t explain, especially redirect loops, check the following:
Clear your cache
If you are having redirects you should not have, first clear your browser cache. Completely!
If a wrong redirect is set once as a permanent redirect, your browser will continue to redirect for a LONG time before it checks again if it still should redirect.
The only way to avoid that is to clear your cache!
Use a different browsers
Some browsers like Safari are really stubborn and will continue to remember permanent redirects even after clearing their cache.
So, you owe it to yourself to try with a different browser before pulling your hair out.
$baseurl you configured in _basic_config.php.
- Is it EXACTLY like the URL of your website?
- Does it include
www.when it should not?
- Does it lack
www.when it should have it?
- Does it have an ending
/? (It MUST !)
See Base URL ($baseurl) for more info.
Check the base URL of your collection
Each collection or blog has it’s own baesurl, which is generally the global $baseurl with some specific string at the end.
See URL Settings.
Same checklist as above.
If you have a custom
.htaccess file on your site, it’s possible that it generates some redirects. Try to temporarily rename it on your server, then clear your caches and try again.
