  • Hello Jerome,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    Please enable the redirection debugging at WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > General Settings > Redirections.

    Then, visit the source URL to know exactly why it is getting redirected. You will get an interstitial page showing details about your redirect.

    If your target URL is a 404, you much check the fallback setting for 404s at WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > General Settings > Redirections.

    Make sure it is set to Default 404.

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

    Hi, thanks for fast reply !

    I already enabled debug. It says redirecting to homepage.
    And fallback behaviour is set to homepage.

    The question is why is it redirecting? Without redirection enabled link works fine…

    thanks for your help
