    I have a whole slew of redirects since I relaunched my site. My problem today is that there are a few I added today that simply will not work and I cannot figure out why.

    I am trying to get rid of duplicate items because they are different sizes, some are discounted and some are not. I finally figured out a way to make this happen. But when I try redirect the duplicate item to the one I am going to keep, it stays on the first page instead of redirecting. It is because the entire url is identical except for the item # ?

    Example:

    mysite.com/item-131/alfalfa-seed.htm

    will not redirect to

    mysite.com/item-9918/alfalfa-seed.htm

    Using the redirect screen in cpanel. There are several hundred redirects I posted that way already that do work.
