Redirect Needed for WordPress Lessons

Description

WordPress Lessons used to load at this link:
https://wordpress.org/documentation/article/wordpress-lessons/

That link is now 404ing, but I was able to find them here (post ID 11036646):
https://wordpress.org/support/article/wordpress-lessons/?utm_source=zpacks/travatical

I'm not certain about the necessity of the utm param in the link, but I wasn't able to get the page to load without them.

Could a redirect be added to ensure visitors to the original URL land in the correct place and don't get the 404? Thanks!

  • Type changed from enhancement to defect (bug)

There's two issues here, which are the reverse of the issue reported:

  1. https://wordpress.org/support/article/wordpress-lessons/?utm_source=zpacks/travatical should not be accessible, that should redirect to something on https://wordpress.org/documentation/
  2. https://wordpress.org/documentation/article/wordpress-lessons/ doesn't seem to have ever existed, I suspect it shouldn't exist either based on the /support/article/ content. I think it should redirect to https://wordpress.org/documentation/overview/ myself.

I'll follow up with the Documentation team for #2, but I'm going to see if I can resolve #1.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm going to close this as...

  • It now redirects to a 404
  • It's intended to 404
