Description (last modified by jonoaldersonwp)

In each of the following cases, a 301 redirect should be configured from the URL value to the To value.

Note:

  • All origin URLs should match with and without a trailing slash (i.e., all URL values should be considered to be regex patterns ending in /?$).
  • All destination URLs should be/use HTTPS.
  • Feel free to use some discretion in selecting more appropriate 'To' values as desired.
  • Feel free to consolidate individual rules into regex patterns where sensible (though watch out for false-positives).
