#4366 closed defect (fixed)

Change the behaviour of empty plugin tag pages

Reported by: jonoaldersonwp Owned by: coffee2code
Milestone: Priority: high
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords: analytics seo


Plugin tags which don't exist, e.g., https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/cats-cats-cats/, redirect to a search - e.g., https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/cats-cats-cats/.

Empty tags, like https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/live-radio/, don't redirect. We should change this so that the behaviour is consistent - empty tags should 301 redirect using the same logic as non-existing tag requests.
