Thank you, Luke, this is very helpful. The redirect from the http version of the old domain directly to the https version of the new domain makes sense; I assume that if I didn’t have it there, there would be two redirects happening instead.
Since you mentioned it: I do have other questions too. Currently, I’m using these redirects:
/ ref=producthunt /
# App updates blog articles
/whatsNew v=:version /whatsNew/:version 301
/whatsNew/1.1 https://blog.timelinesapp.io/whats-new-in-timelines-1-1?ref=whatsNewAlert 301
/whatsNew/1.2 https://blog.timelinesapp.io/timelines-1-2-brings-archiving-simultaneous-timers-and-more?ref=whatsNewAlert 301
/whatsNew/1.3 https://blog.timelinesapp.io/timelines-1-3-is-here-reminders-statistics-snapping-and-more/?ref=whatsNewAlert 301
/whatsNew/1.4 https://blog.timelinesapp.io/update-1-4 301
/whatsNew/1.5 https://blog.timelinesapp.io/update-1-5 301
Will those be impacted in any way? For the blog.timelinesapp.io, I’m using another hosting, so, I will handle those there, but I’m more interested in the ‘dance’ between going from /whatsNew?v=1.1 to /whatsNew/1.1.
Also, I keep getting emails from Netlify about changed behavior for redirects, and it seems to me that I should be able to just add exclamation mark to all the redirects related to blog posts, just to make sure that the redirect is forced. But for the first three redirects - how should I handle those?
Thank you so much for your help.
