I am trying to add a simple 301 redirect to a website's htaccess, but no redirection is occurring, nor am I encountering any errors--can anyone shed some light? The redirect would redirect people visiting an old blog post to a new page:
- old blog post: https://www.horizonhomes-samui.com/horizon-homes-construction/
- new page: https://www.horizonhomes-samui.com/construction/
The redirect code I'm using is:
Redirect 301 /horizon-homes-construction/ https://www.horizonhomes-samui.com/construction/
Possibly Relevant Info
My site is a Wordpress site.
I also tried adding a "RewriteEngine On" line to the top, but that did not resolve the issue.
The htaccess file I'm editing is located in my WordPress root directory (along with wp-content, wp-admin, index.php, etc).
The instructions I'm following for adding the 301 redirect are from this guide.
