Hi!

I created some general redirects which work fine. But now I'm trying to find more targeted redirects with as few redirect rules as possible.

Example:

old url:

/loesungen-abitur/mathematik-abitur-bayern-2021/pruefungsteil-a/analysis-1/teilaufgabe-1.html

new url:

/abiturloesungen-mathematik-bayern/mathematik-abitur-bayern-2021/pruefungsteil-a/analysis-1/teilaufgabe-1.html

The first part of the url has permanently changed. other parts of the url can take different values, which I can better explain with the attached screenshot.

Is it possible to have only one redirect (or a few redirects) for all those similar biult urls? And if yes with which expressions can I work.

Best regards,

Christian

Hi

In your example, and assuming only the first segment has changed, you would do:

From: /loesungen-abitur/{*}

To: /abiturloesungen-mathematik-bayern/{*}

to redirect any such group of URLs with just one rule.

Hi

That's great. I didn't think it would be so easy to redirect hundreds of items directly.

Until now I only had this redirect:

/loesungen-abitur/*

/abiturloesungen-mathematik-bayern/

Thank you very much!

Best regards,

Christian

Hi

Yes, that's kind of the main goal: create redirects for many pages in one go, without having to learn regular expressions in your .htaccess (you CAN use regular expressions if you so desire).

/loesungen-abitur/*

Note that the syntax uses {*} and not *. Just * will have no effect - unless you want to redirect the URL /loesungen-abitur/* which is a perfectly valild URL.
