Making WordPress.org

#5274 closed defect (fixed)

Requesting a topic ID directly redirects via a 302

Reported by: jonoaldersonwp Owned by: dd32
Milestone: Priority: lowest
Component: Support Forums Keywords: seo


'Raw' topic requests requests like https://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=24979, https://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=24980, https://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=24981 redirect to their respective threads with a 302 status. This should be altered to a 301.

Additionally, these redirects append a replies=x parameter. This should be removed as part of the same redirect/change.

@jonoaldersonwp I only see the replies parameter added when logged-in. Presumably that alleviates the need that this is removed from an SEO perspective? (I agree the HTTP status should be changed in any case).

Ah, good catch. Yes, we can remove 'remove the replies parameter' as a concern :)

These are handled by bbPress 1 and not modifiable until it goes bye-bye
