Redirect not working on menu structure 2 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hi,

I have JRedirect installed on my Joomla 3.6.4 website.
I have a current URL which is:
https://www.domainname.com/parentmenuitem/childmenuitem

I want to remove the parentmenuitem from the URL so I went to the meun item edition page and removed the parent menu from the menu item. The menu item is then now at the menu root level. My URL is now:
https://www.domainname.com/childmenuitem

However JRedirect didn't create a redirect for this action so I had to create it manually in .htaccess for not losing my trafic. I have lots of URL to change the same way, am I doing something wrong or is there a bug in jRedirect?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

it looks like an unsupported and not managed case.
Not all menu item type are redirected, it depends on the specific component if throwing an 404 error. Also the record is not created in the JRedirects list when a menu structure changes, only when an alias change a new record is needed and created, so that's expected.

However i will look deeper into this and eventually post here any update.

Thanks

Hi,

I've installed the new version but the problem described in my first post is still there. Hasn't changed a thing.
Was it supposed to be fixed?

Thanks.

Hi,

as i said not all menu item type can be redirected, it depends on the specific component if throwing an 404 error or not. So it's possible for Joomla menu items pointing to an article for example. If it doesn't work in your case it means that there is not 404 thrown so no auto redirect is possible.

Thanks

Well in my case, it's a regular menu item pointing to an article so I'm not sure why removing the parent item doesn't create the auto redirect.
