Remap manager: from URL has space


Matrix Version: v5.5.3.3

I need to create remap in the remap manager where the from URL contains space. It seems that Matrix removes the space. And if I replace the space with %20 the redirect doesn’t work.

Is there any workaround for this?


One workaround I found is to use Remap Rule.

Wondering there are other (and better) workarounds.

Hmm, may be a web proxy setting that needs tweaking so that Matrix interprets %20 properly. You could maybe use a remap rule to just replace all %20 values to a dash or underscore, and then set the remap to use that instead. It’d do a double redirect, but at least it’d be a global rule that could work for other remaps like this that you want to create. Sounds like it may be a bug actually as well if it does work for remap rules but not static remaps, so worth sending a support ticket in for to get investigated further by Squiz support.


@Bart it is definitely working in remap rule and not in the normal remap. I have done the double handling, one using remap rule to remove the space and then normal remap to do the rest.
