I have a page rule that looks like this:
and when I submit a url that looks like this:
It redirects me to this:
There had been a RewriteRule on the hosting server, which I thought might be creating some kind of odd loop. But the behaviour is the same with that rule removed from my
That’s an infinite loop because you’re rewriting * to be large, then hitting the rules again, which again catches “large” because of the wildcard. And so, and so on.
Thanks. Is there a workaround? What I ended up doing this time is redirecting the DNS away from Cloudflare and doing it with .htaccess / mod_rewrite.
Maybe add a symbolic link so you have example.com/images/rewrite pointing at example.com/images/large
So your rule would look for anything in images//.* and redirect them to images/rewrite/
That made more sense in my mind when I posted it last night.
On your server, if you create a symbolic link that the rule points to, it won’t trigger the rule:
Images really in example.com/images/WHATEVER
Symlink of example.com/img points to example.com/images
So the rule looks for anything in example.com/images and redirects it to images in example.com/img
Thanks. I think that makes sense. So it would be a combination of a page rule on Cloudflare and symlinks on the server with the codebase on it?
Just the one symlink on the server if everything really is in /images/large
But if you’re able to get it to work without Cloudflare by using mod_rewrite, that shouldn’t change if you enable Cloudflare. It sounds like there’s something else going on.
