I have urls that don’t want to follow Rank Math redirects on Wordpress. I have disabled all plugins and themes but I have the same error.
Example: https://giocone.com/dress-up/ does not exist, but goes to the post https://giocone.com/dress-up-games-coloring-book/. It should show the code 404. I enter the 410 redirect with Rank Math, but I get no benefit.
I have similar problems with urls going to the domain page.
Or the redirection from http://www to https://www to https://. I don’t understand why the redirect needs to appear one more and go to https://www. It does not make sense.
WordPress has all sorts of automatic redirections (all under the redirect_canonical() mother function) that are helpful in most cases (especially to avoid duplicate content in SEO), so I won’t recommend you throw the baby out with the bathwater by completely disabling this function.
Instead, if you’d like to monitor ALL your site’s 404 errors yourself (rather than letting WordPress handle them for you), then you can disable the specific subfunction that handles 404 redirections (I believe that is redirect_guess_404_permalink()).
As this is really a WordPress issue and nothing to do with Cloudflare, please use the appropriate official WordPress support channel if you need further help with this: Documentation – WordPress.org
