    What is Infocaster? Does anything break if I delete the DLL?

    Hi all, inherited an Umbraco build in my new role. New to the platform.

    The Redirect URL Management tab in Settings wasn't working.

    The table with the redirects was showing fine, and continually being added to as URLs were being rewritten (the URL tracker was working), but the 301 redirects just weren't firing when users visited the URL - the 404 was showing.

    The docs say:

    In addition, Umbraco will automatically disable the feature if it detects any DLL whose name would contain any of the following strings:

      "InfoCaster.Umbraco.UrlTracker"
      "SEOChecker"
      "Simple301"
      "Terabyte.Umbraco.Modules.PermanentRedirect"
      "CMUmbracoTools"
      "PWUrlRedirect"
    

    So I removed these files from /bin:

    • InfoCaster.Umbraco.UrlTracker.dll
    • InfoCaster.Umbraco.UrlTracker.pdb

    Issue resolved - redirects work! No immediate effects.

    I'm only wondering what these were for - I can't seem to find much online.

    Much appreciated.

    InfoCaster.Umbraco.UrlTracker.dll is for this plugin: https://our.umbraco.org/projects/developer-tools/301-url-tracker/

    Umbraco added redirect functionality to the core recently, and it attempts to automatically detect if another plugin is already install so as to avoid duplicating redirect functionality.

    Many thanks for that Nicholas, I'll take a look at the plugin.

    Much appreciated!
