      Description

      The pattern matching example is quite misleading. There should be a note where exactly to copy your old site (in a standard seeded project) to make the pattern matching work.

      At least for me it worked only after I used a **.html directeive.

      <map:match pattern="old_site/**.html">

        Woops. Just tried that example myself. Would you please explain how you got it to work.

        Changed the issue summary to be explicit. Set Urgency=urgent as we must be sure that this answer and the linked explanation and demonstration are as clear as possible.

        I don't see the problem with this FAQ entry. Sure, the user has to work out the right match to put into place, but it's not the job of the FAQ to give all the details.

        I've added a link to the sitemap docs to help new users.
