url-rewrite with confluence

I am trying to perform a simple url rewrite however it seems everything I try does not do what I am expecting.

I am using UrlRewrite 2.5 plugin from tuckey.org
Basically I just want to redirect http://wiki/marketing to http://wiki/display/CORP/Marketing so my end users dont have to type the exra display/CORP.

Here is once example that I tried in my urlrewrite.xml file

<from>^/maketing$</from> <to type="redirect">/display/CORP/Marketing</to>

mod_rewrite works for sure:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/marketing$
/display/CORP/Marketing [R]

2 cents: I never tried this one, but I imagine that the order of the filters is important, so try to move your filter declaration as the first one (so that this is invoked first).

I also think that you should come with more info. What kind of problems do you have ? (what is happening ?)

Thanks for you answer... I will give this a try.

Basically nothing happends as if the rule does not exist.

Have you tried to enable some debug on it ?

The <from> value you have there is "maketing", it should be "marketing" (with an "r").

I was able to get this working by upgrading to conf 4.1 and installing a redirect plugin.
