301 redirects and query string parameters


#1

301 redirects don't seem to work when the page has a query string parameter. For example /products/index.asp will work but /products/index.asp?pageid=821 will not. Is there a way I can get this to work? I've read somewhere about doing it with a URL rewrite in .htaccess but I'm using your hosting so can't do it myself.

Hi @MichaelSzabo, sorry for the late reply. At the moment this is not possible, but I have added this as a wishlist item.

This is a very important feature and shouldn't be a "wishlist item". I have rewritten my site using your platform coming from a Joomla-based site I inherited, and now I can't redirect the traffic from the search engine ranking I've worked so hard to get. Please make this a priority. It's not hard to do. I would be happy with "index.php*" redirecting to the home page.

Hi guys,

I have the same issue. I need to redirect URLs that contain characters like "?" which is not possible under the current webflow abilities.

Please solve this issue asap!


#7

Hi guys,

is there any update regarding our issue with redirect? I think that many webflow users are concerned with that problem!

Would be awesome if you found a solution soon!

Cheers
Clemens

Have you checked the Wildcard rules on this help page?

Thx very much for your hint! But unfortunately it couldn't redirect all of the "broken URLs".

@webflow : please make it possible to redirect URLs that contain "?"

Hi @C.JUNGMAIR, the team is already investigating a solution :slight_smile: When there is a change, this post will be updated :slight_smile:

Currently re-directing query strings isn't supported as I found out today when trying to redirect index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1 to /about. Hope it's something webflow updates!


#12

I was able to achieve this using the process outlined here: https://help.webflow.com/article/how-to-redirect-old-urls-to-new-pages-in-your-webflow-site-301-redirects

To redirect https://www.website.com/path?param=hello
to https://www.newwebsite.com/newpath?param=hello

Add a redirect like this:
/path(.*) -> https://www.newwebsite.com/newpath%1

Seems like it's working for me, but let me know if I am missing something important.
