Redirect (old) AMP to non-AMP (previously via regex)

Hello All,
Just finish migrating my WordPress site to Hugo and deployed my site via Netlify.

Currently I am trying to sort redirects and reading documentation about _redirects file manager to achieve almost all.

When moved from wordpress, I (intentionally) resigned from AMP (for now) and would like to redirect old AMP links to non-AMP.


Without specifying it for each individually

Easy is to do with :splat for everything whats after url, but how to do that whats before?

just need to remove /amp/ from URL end if requested in such way

@idarek Welcome to the Netlify community.

Have you tried something like:

from = "https://mysite.url/mypost/amp/*"
to = "https://mysite.url/mypost/:splat"
status = 301
force = false


https://mysite.url/mypost/amp/* https://mysite.url/mypost/:splat 301

Thank, but part of /mypost/ is dynamic hence if I want to do this that way, that means I will need to do for 190+ posts.

Looking more like an equivalent of .htaccess rule

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(.*)/amp/?$ /$1/ [L,R=301]


https://mysite.url/*/amp https://mysite.url/$1

Before I will brake something, do you think this will work?

/*/amp/ /:splat 301

wonder if asterisk will catch only whats between / and /amp/ ?

It won’t be a splat you’re after, in that situation, it’ll be a placeholder:

So, something like /:context/amp /:context 301 should do it!

Thanks for that, didn’t know about :context as is not really described in linked page that you provided. Think worth to update with it.

Will have a try later today and let you know.

Working well, thank you!
