I have this site hosted on Netlify (https://youthful-wescoff-043c05.netlify.app) which is taking the place of an existing site. As such I wanted to directed any missing content on the new site to the old one. So I added the following redirect:
[[redirects]] from = "/*" to = "https://old.abolbrasil.org.br/:splat" status = 301 force = false
Which seemed to work great, until I got a report that some images were broken. After looking into it in the reporter’s computer I noticed that the image was actually being redirected as per the rule above. But in my computer this wasn’t happening. After a while investigating I managed to get the same issue on varying URLs, in different computers. The thing is, the files exist and in fact I can access them normally from most computers, browsers, and even CLIs (like curl) I tested.
It seems to me like Netlify is caching a redirect but only on a few edge nodes (totally speculative, it’s just my impression).
What could possibly be happening?
