I recently upgraded to EE2 2.11.7 and I was using a redirect to automatically redirect user if on search results if there was an exact match.

This was working fine for me previously: {if total_results == 1}{redirect="{page_url}"}{/if}

But now getting error, The URI you submitted is not allowed.. And the URL is adding the absolute path on top of the domain like this: http://example.com/http:/example.com/page/url/entry

I can use some jQuery to fix with a trigger click, but it's kind of clunky. Any way to fix that url to properly redirect?

Try using {page_uri} instead of {page_url} The redirect tag is looking for a relative, not absolute value.
