Redirection infinite loop

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    I have just tested this on my end but I could not reproduce the infinite loop. Here is a screencast to demonstrate my steps:

    Assuming you are using the latest version of all the plugins and the themes (please update if not yet), it would seem like a conflict with one of the plugins or the theme you are using.

    To determine that, please follow this troubleshooting guide:

    Please let us know if you find the culprit.

    Only the site admin would know and your users won’t be affected by this troubleshooting.

    Looking forward to helping you.


    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    I added video of my try to sensitive data section.
    You can see that in the video, it’s clean WordPress install.
    On first change of URL, the Auto Post Redirect creates redirection from test1 to test2.
    On second change it adds test2 as source and changes destination to test1, but also leaves test1 as source URL which creates loop redirect test1 to test1.
    When I manually remove test1 source url it’s OK.

    Hi Ondrej,

    I am sorry but that is the correct way of doing it. Rank Math doesn’t know you are changing the URL back so you will need to remove the redirect manually if you ever do this.

    With that said, WP internally manages redirects when you change the slug so enabling the option in Rank Math is not required. It is only provided in case the WP option of automatically redirecting on slug change doesn’t work.

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

    I didn’t realize that WP does it internally.

    Hi Ondrej,

    You are very welcome.

    Hey, if it isn’t too much to ask for – would you mind leaving us a review here?

    It only takes a couple of minutes but helps us tremendously.

    It would mean so much to us.

    Thank you.
