I've changed the permalink for WordPress author-pages from
/author/ to the Dutch variant
/auteur/. This works perfectly. However, Google is showing error 404's in the Search Console. So in order to redirect the old versions that Google knows to the new ones, I want to redirect users with a 301 redirect in the following way:
I've placed the following redirect-code in the
.htaccess file, yet it doesn't seem to work:
RedirectMatch 301 ^/author/$ ^/auteur/$1
What am I missing here?
