Redirects from old CPG galleries to new pages
« on: January 21, 2023, 04:07:02 am »

Apologies . I posted this in the older 1.5 support .. it might be better here.

I'm switching to a new server, and no longer using cpg, and having trouble getting redirects from the old cpg galleries and images to work.

For albums and categories that I will not redirect, just are gone and no longer exist, I wrote the 410 rule as

Code: [Select]
RewriteRule ^stock/thumbnails\.php\?album=62$ - [R=410, L]

That breaks the new site and creates a 500 error

For old cpg albums that I want to redirect to a new url, I wrote

Code: [Select]
RewriteRule ^stock/thumbnails\.php\?album=36$ [R=301,L]

But it does nothing. THe urls from cpg show as 404 pages. I also tried it as

Code: [Select]
Redirect 301 /stock/index.php?cat=2

which also does nothing.

I also want to redirect any image display pages to the root gallery of their relative album. So an image from a particular cpg album would go to the gallery page for that on the new site. I wrote

Code: [Select]
RewriteRule ^stock/displayimage\.php\?album=30&.*$ [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^stock/displayimage\.php\?album=32&.*$ - [R=410,L]

to send any image from album 30 to the CA wildlife photos album and any image from album 32 is gone.

None of these last work but I can't see what's wrong with them?

Any help would be superduper appreciated, thanks.

Checking a few things:
-   What web server is being used ?  Apache ?
-   Is this code you want to put in a .htaccess file ?

There are lots of examples available with a Google search such as on this site:

Some of the examples are similar to your code.   

There’s a Regex tester here:

…so you could try using the RewriteMatch directive and testing it in the above site.
