Categories and redirects

Bought this just now, in the hope that it would solve a groups 404 redirect issue.
I was the person who originally suggested the 404 redirects !

It doesn’t work on my site now.
I have disables and deleted everything and started again, not fixed, though it did delete all posts with a groups restriction. I had a backup.

Tried downgrading the PHP version, I am using 7, still no luck
Made sure that the category was restricted and that the posts which were restricted in the category and sub categories had the same restrictions.
Tried redirecting to a different page, still not resolved.

I am not using the legacy version of groups, I updated all my posts to the new version.
I did try going back to legacy version, but still not resolved.

What do you suggest I try ?

This is really a 404 issue as it didn’t work even without the categories restriction plugin installed enabled. However there is no advantage to me having the categories restricted.
As I say I bought it to try and solve a 404 redirects issue.

    Hi Craig,

    There is a setting under Groups > Groups 404 which you can enable: “Redirect restricted categories, tags and taxonomy terms …”

    Once that is enabled, you should have the redirects working also when an unauthorized user visits a category page. Please try that and let me know if it worked for you.
