Redirection sends me to the new site address with complete old address appended to it


#1

I was using a custom domain (johnfixesstuff.com) at blogspot and I am now forwarding that domain to an entirely new domain (shareyourrepair.com) at a wordpress installation. I successfully imported all my blogspot files and they are all mapped and named correctly. If I type any old custom domain page link they correctly redirect to the new domain. The only thing that is not working is if someone were to use an old johnfixesstuff.blogspot.com link, it doesn’t forward to the correct path, here’s what happens…

If someone were to try visiting:

The code I got from the plugin redirects them to:

Can you tell me what I need to do? It seems like an easy fix.

Thanks, John

Hi @johnfixesstuff,

To fix this there are two possible option:

Option 1:

You can activate http://johnfixesstuff.blogspot.com/ domain on blogspot site and add its plugin redirection code in the page template. So all links from http://johnfixesstuff.blogspot.com/ will get redirected to http://shareyourrepair.com

Add domain forwarding for johnfixesstuff.com domain to redirect all its links to shareyourrepair.com along with maintaining the permalinks as it is.

Options 2:

As you have the redirection code (in javascript) to redirect from http://johnfixesstuff.blogspot.com/ to http://shareyourrepair.com

Similarly, you can inform your developer to write conditional codes in javascript to redirect links to http://shareyourrepair.com whenever user visits the blogspot site from http://johnfixesstuff.blogspot.com or http://johnfixesstuff.com domain.

I ended up using a different plugin which generated the redirect code for me that actually works. Thanks for your reply. Everything is redirecting correctly now. I had assigned a custom domain to my blogspot blog but the ancient johnfixesstuff.blogspot.com links forward correctly to shareyourrepair.com now so I’m all good.

Thanks, John
