Nginx redirect question

Posted January 28, 2020 535 views

I’m needing to redirect all blog posts to, eg: to, and have been trying to do this with nginx rewrite rules.

I’m not trying to redirect a specific URL, I’m trying to match all URLs at{blog-slug-name-here} and redirect to{blog-slug-name-here}. However a normal nginx rewrite would keep redirecting so you end up going etc....

Hopefully this makes sense, I’d appreciate any help as I can’t seem to find this scenario on any of the online forums?

Many thanks!

Just for everyone’s interest, I finally managed to get this working with:

rewrite ^/en/blog/(?!$)(?!news)(.*) /en/blog/news/$1 permanent;
