Some observations - instructions

Aug 24, 2011 at 3:37 PM

I was able to use the initial release version without any modification (thanks).

Here are the instructions that I posted on the URL Redirect Matches lists:

  • In Title, use wildcards after /. Check regular expression box.
  • Do not use wildcards in Redirect URL (they are implied) but use trailing /. 
  • Precede Title URL with (?i) to make it case-insensitive. Check regular expression box.
  • Redirects to ANY /_layouts and /_catalogs do not work.
  • Make sure that Sorting and Disable columns are evaluated (must have number and either yes or no).

    EXAMPLE:
    (?i)http://someserver.net/lis/*  http://someotherserver.net/lis/   (no title) 2 No

    Thanks again.

    Just one more thing. If the dedirect URL results in a 404 and the redirect server does not have a similar 404 handler, it will result in an unhandled 404 from the original server (not the redirect target). Our solution was to put a similar 404 handler on the target server.
