We are using this module for our redirection for 404's and manually created redirects.
The site has a number of pages translated for the American audience. We added a redirect today for a page and simply pointed the redirect url to <front>. The referring URL is http://www.example.com/when-to-go/october. In the General site settings, the front page is set to /homepage. (A Basic page for this exists.)

Now when going to http://www.example.com/when-to-go/october, the users are redirected to http://www.example.com/en-us which gives a The page isn't redirecting properly error.

There are two issues:

  • It should simply send users to /homepage, which is what is set to

  • If we wanted the American version, then it should use en-US not en-us; Drupal seems to be treating this as case sensitive

  • Hopefully that's not your actual version? If so read drupal.org/sa-core-2018-002 as soon as you can

1 Answer 1


A circular redirect was been caused which stopped the redirect to front working. Checking the redirects already created and removing the offending ones fixed the issue.
