The example suggests, under Forwarding (URL Redirection),
If the URL matches:
.examples . com/
Then the settings are:
Forwarding URL http :// example.com/$2/
Here, a request to “www . example . com / stuff/things” will be redirected to “http :// example . com/stuff/things”.
The example doesn’t seem right – and it didn’t work when I set it up on my domain – because of the trailing forward slash.
I think the example should have said “http :// example . com/$2” and not “http :// example . com/$2/”
