I am trying to get the custom redirect gadget in the BVN.404Handler, but I can't get it to work. It simply wont do the redirects I add.
I have installed the latest version (11.2.3).
The 404 redirect is working.
The redirects are set up like this: <oldurl> - <newurl>
If the old url is valid, it will stay there. If the old url doesn't exist anymore, it will show the 404 page.
Can you post an image of your redirects? Ive created some redirects today although in an older version with now problem.
If you export your redirects do they show up in the XML file?
I would post an image if I could, but the image upload doesn't seem to be working?
I exported the redirects to an xml file, and the result is this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
Verify that your web.config settings are correct. See: https://github.com/Geta/404handler. Especially the handlermode="On".

Thanks for your replies!
So, it seems that it works for urls that don't exist. But it doesn't work for pages that either exist or are expired.
Is this the intended functionality?
I would use IIS Url Rewrite module for redirects instead.
Yes, but we wanted the editors to be able to configure this, so we needed a way to do this in episerver.
For pages that exist you may want to use the built-in shortcut feature
