Forum Topic: Redirect 301 url with ampersand
After spending more than an hour on Google and your book trying to find a solution for a redirection, I have to give up.
All I want to do is to redirect urls like this
I have tried so many combinations, but I’m stuck with the ampersand.
btw Can an ampersand be treated as a query string? Or under which category does it fall?

Hmmm.. how about something like this:
RedirectMatch 301 ^/dir/(pageslug)(\&(.*)) http://example.com/$1
I got this to work on my server, but it may need some fine-tuning to match exactly what you’re after. I think the key may be to escape the ampersand..?
Thanks Jeff, it was indeed the ampersand escape that did the trick. I managed to get it working using
RedirectMatch 301 ^/dir/pageslug\&(.*) http://dir/pageslug
