URL's from old CMS interfere with new textpatttern setup
Recently I have been redesigning this site and transfered it from another CMS (Lynkx) to textpattern. Now there’s a strange interference going on with the old “messy” site url’s from Lynkx and the new setup that has clean url’s with section/title url modus. All url’s (from search engines) starting with the old messy Lynkx string
/Default.lynkx?id=n are not resulting in a 404 but show the id=n article if existent in the new installation.
Example 1 with existing article id in new site
Example 2 non existing article id in new site
Example 3 fancy url with existing id
I think this is unwanted behavior not in the least because search engines are mislead.
I can think of a rewrite rule rewriting url’s starting with /Default.lynkx to a 404 (anyone can provide one that doesn’t interfere with normal txp url’s?)
