My request for future updates is fairly simple. I have a few websites that i’ve ported into wordpress with succes, however, when i manually put in a 301 redirect from oldpage.html to /new-page.html, ive encountered twice now that upon a wordpress update, the settings are simply lost. This caused a website now to lose it’s position twice on those pages, because google got confused about old vs newpage and it simply ditched the rankings of the old page because of that.
I’m not using a plugin to file in redirects, shoud’nt be that way. We should be able to change htaccess whenever we want to add manual options in there as well like caching, deny from if needed or anything i want actually.
It’s among a new update that the old htaccess gets overwritten appearantly and settings are lost because of that. Does’nt matter if we put in #begin wordpress or after that. This really is a pain in the ass to start checking upon any new update for changes, or to see if the redirect for example is still there.
If you dont change the file, dont put it in a new update. Simple as that.
