Hello,

I have been using the joomla redirect plugin to fix my broken links and redirect them to new ones and I understood there are hundreds of urls which are k2 tag produced.
why k2 tags are being recorded by joomla redirect component?
Am I doing something wrong?
and it is like that in all my websites. once you start the redirect engine , it records all the tags. and those tags are all 404 pages.

Joomla!'s redirect component will record all request across all components. It will not limit to com_content. com_tags etc.

Can you share some 404 errors?

Thanks for your reply.
So do you mean if I remove the com_content com_tags from its related file it will be Ok?
I just turned on the redirect engine on one of my website and I have 1000 tag related redirections with 301 errors and 404 hits.
here are some samples: (sorry that there Persian words in the URL)

www.bahramabedini.ir/fa/عکاسی-صنعتی/tag/همايش

301 is not an error. 301 is a redirect.
All redirects (SEF URLs, custom ones) are 301s.

Now, the issue most possibly lies with Farsi. Have you enabled Joomla!'s unicode slugs?

Thanks for your reply.
I didn't know 301 is a redirect. So what does the 404 hit on its statistics mean?
I should search for Joomla!'s unicode slugs.

I checked that I am using the SEF URLs , URL rewriting and Unicode aliases. so the Unicode's slugs are added to Joomla in this way, right?

Other tags work normally.
bahramabedini.ir/fa/tag/%D8%A7%D8%B1%D8%B3%D8%A8%D8%A7%D8%B1%D8%A7%D9%86%20%D9%88%20%D8%B1%D8%B2%D9%82%D8%A7%D9%86%20%D8%AF%D9%87%DA%A9%D8%AF%DB%80%20%D8%B3%D9%82%D9%86%D8%AF%D9%84

Chances are that it was a deleted tag since I do not notice an issue with Farsi.

Apart from unicode slugs you can use character replacements but this is something I cannot assist you with. Apart from the obvious language barrier, I do not know if your users will benefit.

Thanks for your reply. I took my time to check my tags.
I understood that in the past I might had a URL like this:
mywebsite.com/category1/content1
and a tag related to this like:
mywebsite.com/category1/content1/tag/artisti1
now that I have changed the category name or content URL address:
mywebsite.com/category1-2/content121
the tags are still referring yo the old URL somehow:
mywebsite.com/category1/content1/tag/artisti1
and also the new one exist:
mywebsite.com/category1-2/content121/tag/artisti1

The other thing is that even the URL you said is working, it is not working now that I clicked on it. and I have not changed anything on the website since then. isn't this a bit weird?

You mean, the front-end not the redirect component, right?
Are you using any caching extensions?

Yes, that's my guess. That it is the front-end tag.

I am using JCH optimize to crunch the front-end codes. and I guess you are assuming the tags are now in cache, right?
I can try cleaning and purge the cache.
