I have just finished setting up a few 301 redirections using the "Redirections" plugin on the new site, as a preparation for moving from the old site. Currently, the new site is defined as a subdomain and eventually, it will be defined under the top level domain name of the site. Right now, any original URL (from the old site) I run on the subdomain of the new site results in a loop of the browser until getting an error.
A URL from the old site:
The redirection definition:
/page.html -> /page
So that right now, under the subdomain, running this URL:
Should redirect to:
As mentioned, when going to the old page on the new site, it loops.
I want to know if this happens because the new site is defined now on a subdomain and when it's defined on the TLD, this situation will not occur.
If that's not the issue, I need to know the reason and to resolve it before I go live with the new site.
