Single redirect not working


So, I help manage and we’ve setup a redirect for A unique career - Best.Energy so its goes to a different URL away from the site: (Client request) and for some reason, its not working.

The build log isn’t showing any issues and it shows 21 redirect rules processed but i just can’t get /careers to redirect. All other redirects work, i’ve also tried adding in the redirect to netlify.toml but that won’t work and i can’t blame this on caching anymore

hi there, could you share your redirects file with us please?

hi there, thanks for that. i see 20 redirect rules in that file, but you mentioned that 21 show as processed?

where is the missing rule, i wonder :thinking:

also, does the redirect work if you move it to the top of the file? i would be interested to see if that changes anything.

Hi! Yes! So we also added a redirect to the netlify.toml file as well to test that but even putting it in there and removing it from _redirects, it doesn’t want to work!

Tried putting it at the top but also didn’t resolve anything.

Hey @EllieRC

It appears there is content at, so this content is loading instead of the redirect triggering. If you want to redirect regardless of the content at /careers you will need to force the redirect e.g.

/careers   301!


  from = "/careers/*"
  to = ""
  status = 301
  force = true
