Redirection/URL issue with retracted stories
I've noticed a glitch or an error when I am retracting stories. It looks like retracted stories are redirecting to other retracted stories with the same URL/SEO headline. When I retract an article, I must remove the SEO headline and change the SOCIAL headline to "This Article Has Been Removed" however, I noticed that when I check if the article was updated on , the URL will redirect me to a different link. E.g. I retracted this story (URL : /en-ca/life/toronto/twitter-discusses-why-scarborough-might-be-the-most-ratchet-place-in-toronto) When I click on the link, it redirects me to a different story that was also retracted on back in May. I don't know if this will cause an issue for us down the road, but I wanted to submit it regardless. Every time we retract a story, the URL (this-article-has-been-removed) is duplicated again and again. I'm not sure if this matters or not but I wanted to make sure we look into it just to be sure! url link:/en-ca/life/toronto/twitter-discusses-why-scarborough-might-be-the-most-ratchet-place-in-toronto redirected to: When you click on the link to see the story on you should see this text "This post was removed on November 19, 2020, for not meeting Narcity's editorial standards. More details about our policies can be found here.". Instead, it's redirecting to another retracted story with the same url that was retracted on May 7, 2020.
