Unable to Remove Option " Redirect Orphan Media"

  • Hi,

    On our site, redirect orphan media is set to the homepage URL. I suspect that this is causing our 404 pages to be redirected to the homepage as well. To test, I was trying to remove the URL, but it doesn’t update on saving.

  • Hello,

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

    This feature does not affect the default behavior of 404 pages. You can however modify the default fallback behavior by heading over to Rank Math > General Settings > Redirections > Fall back behavior

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    Let me be clearer: the redirect orphan media option doesn’t update when saving.

    The 404 issue was just the context.


    Thanks for getting back to us.
