I published a post a few weeks ago with a long URL. I subsequently started promoting that article on the URL.
I just signed in to my webmaster account and saw that the I have a 404 error on this link. I went to my website, although the post title is showing on the sidebar, the links goes to a 404 page.
I tried everything I could ...no luck. So I decided to change the URL to a shorter link and it worked.
I have been trying to redirect my new URL to my old URL to get rid of the 404. I tried this through my Cpanel, I'm still getting the 404 message.
I tried using Redirect Plugin... but it doesn't seem to work or I don't know how to use it.
