HUGE issues with cloudflare taking control of redirection in certain instances over the redirection plugin in wordpress

im having a huge issue with my site. with certain links, the Cloudflare takes over and precides over the redirection plugin i installed.

what i mean by this is that certain website urls, when i add a redirection to them via the redirection plugin, they don’t work and instead i am told by a tool that cloudlfare has redirected it and to one specific page EVERY single time without fail no matter what the original url is.

example: this page [] has a redirect set via the plugin, however that does not work and instead, it redirect into multiple things before landing on a page from 2018.

it also goes through multiple redirects and one of them includes adding a specific date at the end of the url.

another example is] its supposed to redirect to another author but redirects to the same page

please help me stop this

Have you asked the tool who told you this why they believe it is Cloudflare doing the redirection?


i can see how it redirects from a tool called redirect paths, and its telling me Cloudflare is doing the redirection, not the ‘redirection plugin’ thats how i know. also, each link that is a 404 is showing me a date next to it

if you check those two links, it automatically adds dates after the [/]

Both of those links return a 500 error code from the origin.
