If you use a third-party application or content management system to add a redirect, such as Wordpress®, the redirect may not function properly. When you add a redirect with cPanel interface, the system places redirect rules at the bottom of the
.htaccess file. Some third-party applications ignore the rule that you add, because those applications only read rules and configurations that their section of the
.htaccess file contains.
