Issue with Redirects and White Screen on Ghost (Pro) Platform

`Hello everyone,

I’m relatively new to the Ghost (Pro) platform and have been experiencing an issue while attempting to set up redirects from my old site to the new one. Overall, my experience with the platform has been positive, but I’ve encountered a hurdle in this particular aspect.

Following the instructions provided in the documentation, I downloaded the YAML file for redirects, made the necessary adjustments, and uploaded it back onto the platform. However, upon attempting to upload the file and pressing the “upload redirects” button, my screen unexpectedly turned white.

I’ve attempted various troubleshooting steps, including logging in and out, restarting my computer, clearing cache, and even switching browsers from Safari to Chrome, but the issue persists.

Furthermore, when I attempted to repeat the process, instead of receiving the expected YAML file upon download, I ended up with a file in JSON format, which according to the documentation, is not the correct file type for this purpose.

For context, I’m currently using the “Basho Color Fueko” theme on my Ghost site.

I would greatly appreciate any insights or assistance from the community on how to resolve this issue and successfully set up redirects as intended.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Welcome to Ghost! If you need support for your paid hosting, you can also email the Ghost Pro folks at their support address. This is a community support forum, so most posters are volunteers. We don’t have access to your site or any files.

Could you please post your redirects file? Use the code button so that the formatting doesn’t get mangled. And when you say the screen went white, which screen? The homepage screen, or a screen in the admin section?

P.S. did AI write that post? If so, it did a pretty terrible job of providing any useful information, and you may want to check if it’s lying about the anything.

can´t find the so called code button? or do I have to copy the whole 300 lines into? thanks for replay…

It looks like this: </>

And yes, if you want help finding what’s probably a problem in the file, you’re going to need to provide a way for someone to see it. :)

Hi Cathy, thanks and yes, I have used AI because I thought it’s a better way to have a valid structure and a logical form for the forum. It seems not. ,-/
What I did was:

  • Login and logout.
  • Empty cache.
  • Downloaded the Pro account redirect file, but surprisingly, upon changing it, the downloaded version suddenly became a JSON file.
  • Support from Ghost will be available again on Monday, I think.
  • Regarding the white screen, only the admin page went white.

thank you

Thanks for acknowledging. The problem with using ChatGPT for an error report is that it has a bad habit of listing things it thinks you SHOULD have done to solve the problem, but it doesn’t know what happened when (if!) you did those things. And it is sometimes just plain wrong. For example, there’s nothing invalid about JSON for redirects, as it specifically says in the Ghost docs. It’s just an older format.

You’re going to want to use the code button to get the part that’s actually the redirects.yaml file changed to code layout - the problem is that .yaml files are picky about spacing, and I can’t see if your spacing is right without it being set as code.

Without the code formatting:
demo:
hello this spacing is important

With code formatting:

demo:
   hello this spacing is important

I’m suspecting that you got back a json file (an empty one?) because you uploaded an invalid redirects file so Ghost didn’t take it. Uploading a redirects.yaml file without errors should work fine, regardless of what the default file was. :)

Don’t get me wrong, I write the posts using AI, not the files and structure (because you all should understand me and what I have done to come to the point to ask at the forum). I manually handle all of that, following a meticulous process of 3-5 rounds download file>add redirects> upload it > test it > start all over gain with new redirects. I use a code editor called Visual Studio Code and save everything as YAML files, as instructed in the documentation. The initial version was reviewed by the Ghost Pro support team because I’m not familiar with it. Now, my concern arises as I intend to restart my journey and have downloaded the redirect file. In my previous workflow, I always received a YAML file containing all my redirects as the downloaded file. However, in my latest attempt, the final file I received is a JSON file. Do I need to start all over again

It sounds like for whatever reason your Ghost server didn’t accept your last upload, and that cleared out the previous upload. You get a JSON file if you don’t have any redirects uploaded to the server, but it’s totally OK to upload a YAML file from that point.

Hopefully you have a copy of the last version that you uploaded that worked? Or can hit ctrl-Z a couple times in vscode to get back to it?

I suggest checking the file carefully for any errors that might be causing this problem. Perhaps some missing spaces? I can’t help you without a way to see the file formatted as code.

thank you Cathy for the proper update and view. I will go now through every single line because I did all by hand and maybe there is a little error somewhere. Meanwhile happy weekend and thanks a lot!

Happy weekend to you also! I suggest checking that each line starts with exactly two spaces.

It might be quickest to try removing half of the redirects from the file (save a backup!) and see if it works. Then try the other half of the redirects. That’ll help you narrow down where the problem is.

Boom and embarrassing! I found the mistake I made, and it’s not a bug! I forgot to add a “/” in one of my latest lines. Of course, it’s always the most recent line. I wanted to thank you before I delete the post.

I’ve read about the potential downsides of using redirects for SEO purposes, particularly with Google. I’m considering adding canonical versions to my new valid URLs as a best practice. Would setting up a correct redirect to a new URL, based on a redirect, and then adding a canonical version be the right approach? Is that the right practice?

Real human response:
It’s better to have a redirect than a broken link. It’s better to have the right link in the first place than a redirect. Most of the urls you’re redirecting could be set up to use the same URL on Ghost, which would be optimal. You’d make a routes file to accomplish that.

Do NOT create canonical URLs on the Ghost posts that point to themselves. That causes Ghost to drop the post from the sitemap. Use canonical URLs in Ghost only when you want to say “this content is NOT the canonical content and Google should not index it. Google should index this other page instead.” You shouldn’t need to set canonical URLs when redirecting - Google will end up at the correct URL, which is presumably the canonical URL, as a result of your redirect.

But since you like AI content, here’s some for you:

hey ChatGPT. You’re an expert in Ghost. A user on the forum needs an answer to this question: “I’ve read about the potential downsides of using redirects for SEO purposes, particularly with Google. I’m considering adding canonical versions to my new valid URLs as a best practice. Would setting up a correct redirect to a new URL, based on a redirect, and then adding a canonical version be the right approach? Is that the right practice?” Please provide a reply that reflects several years of extensive experience with Ghost across dozens of client sites.

Certainly! When it comes to managing URLs for SEO purposes in Ghost, it’s essential to consider the implications of redirects and canonicalization for maintaining search engine visibility and ensuring a smooth user experience. Here’s a comprehensive approach based on extensive experience with Ghost across various client sites:

  1. Redirects and SEO: While redirects can be useful for directing users and search engines from old URLs to new ones, excessive or improper use of redirects can potentially harm your site’s SEO performance. Google, in particular, has guidelines regarding redirects, and excessive redirection can be seen as a signal of poor site quality or manipulation.
  2. Canonicalization: Canonical URLs help search engines understand the preferred version of a page when there are multiple URLs with similar content. This can be especially relevant for content syndication, pagination, or when dealing with variations of URLs due to parameters or tracking codes.
  3. Best Practices:
  • Implement 301 Redirects: If you’re migrating content to new URLs, set up 301 redirects from the old URLs to the new ones. This signals to search engines that the content has permanently moved, preserving SEO value.
  • Canonical Tags: Alongside redirects, use canonical tags on the new URLs to indicate the preferred version of the content. This helps consolidate link equity and prevents duplicate content issues.
  • Correct Implementation: Ensure that both the redirects and canonical tags are implemented correctly. Mistakes in configuration can lead to indexing issues and loss of SEO value.
  • Regular Monitoring: Continuously monitor your site’s performance, indexation status, and search engine rankings after implementing redirects and canonicalization. This allows you to identify any issues promptly and make necessary adjustments.
  1. Ghost-Specific Considerations:
  • Theme Customization: Depending on your Ghost theme and any additional plugins or customizations, ensure that the necessary templates and code snippets are correctly set up to handle redirects and canonicalization.
  • Robots.txt and Sitemap: Update your robots.txt file and XML sitemap to reflect the changes in URL structure. This helps search engines discover and crawl the new URLs efficiently.

In conclusion, while setting up redirects and canonical versions for new URLs in Ghost can be a part of a comprehensive SEO strategy, it’s crucial to follow best practices, monitor performance, and ensure correct implementation to avoid potential downsides and maintain search engine visibility and user experience. If in doubt, consulting with an experienced SEO professional or developer can provide valuable insights tailored to your specific site and goals.


I know which response I think is better, but you can choose for yourself. Good luck!

(Hint for anyone coming along later: There are several things deeply wrong with the AI response, including the suggestion that you’d need to make your own XML sitemap.)
