Does rename of page slugs create 301 redirects from old slug to new (same as for posts)?
Starting a fresh install of wp
wordpress:4.9.4-php7.1 I'm trying to get automatic redirects for renamed page permalinks working.
- Creating a page with permalink
- Rename that page permalink to
- I expect GET
/ato return a 301 redirect to
Creating a post with slug
a and then renaming it to
b creates a 301 redirect from
b and a row in the
wp-postmeta table with
meta_value with the old slug. Is this supposed to work for pages as well? I think I've had a setup where this works before but now I'm not sure anymore. Is there a default redirect system like this that would also work when changing parents of a page?
