  • Hi,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    Yes, we convert those automatically because by default.

    %3A actually means :
    %22 means "

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Hi Todd,

    I am still not sure about some convertions that happen in the plugin. Let me give you another example which I can’t figure out which destination URL I should use to make it work. In this example, I changed all the %3A and %20 for the character itself, ‘:’ and ‘ ‘, but it seems that character ‘+’ is also replaced by a white space, but the resulting URL is not working (the filter parameters):

    Step 1: Original URL copied from browser that contains %3A…{!tag=ds}id_subfamilia%3A4074&fq=id_tienda%3A4&sort=v30+desc,product(tm4,%20dispo)+asc&start=0&fq=atributos%3A-767_2933_1-767_2413_1-767_3156_1-767_2922_1-767_2412_1-767_2414_1-

    Step 2: Edited URL replacing escaped characters (%3A –> :, %22 –> “, %20 –> ‘white space’ ). This is the URL I copy to Redirections:{!tag=ds}id_subfamilia:4074&fq=id_tienda:4&sort=v30+desc,product(tm4, dispo)+asc&start=0&fq=atributos:-767_2933_1-767_2413_1-767_3156_1-767_2922_1-767_2412_1-767_2414_1-

    Step 3: Destination URL generated by Redirections:{!tag=ds}id_subfamilia:4074&fq=id_tienda:4&sort=v30 desc,product(tm4, dispo) asc&start=0&fq=atributos:-767_2933_1-767_2413_1-767_3156_1-767_2922_1-767_2412_1-767_2414_1-

    In this example, can you tell me which URL should I use in step 2 to make it work?

    Thank you!


    I have forwarded this issue to our Development Team for further debugging. They will take a closer look at this and release an update if needed.

    In the meantime, if there is anything else please let us know. Thank you.

    Actually RankMath should not URL-Encode or convert the target URLs at all as this will lead to issues with parameters…

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for chiming in 🙂

    I have passed this on to our dev team!
