Home Page is redirecting to Another WP Page without my instruction to do so
I have recently switched from Blogger to WordPress (FYI) and don't know all the ins and outs of WP.
After installing and activating the Redirect plug-in, I added one redirect from an old archive URL (which contains all the blog posts for one month) in Blogger format to what it's equivalent URL would has become in WordPress. This redirect worked fine.
Then I created a new Page (as opposed to a post), called "giveaways". After Publishing that page, my main home page suddenly redirected to the new Giveaway page. Every time I reentered my main home page, it would just redirect to the Giveaway Page.
In other words, going to: http://www.nannygoatsinpanties.com
would redirect to: http://www.nannygoatsinpanties.com/about/giveaways
I tried deleting the Giveaway page, but the redirect kept redirecting which resulted in a 404 Not Found (since the Giveaway page was now gone). After messing around some more then it got stuck in some redirect loop or something and a different error came up and my website didn't come up at all. (sorry I can't remember what the exact error was, but it indicated that it was timing out because of some redirect loop.
I deactivated the plug-in and everything was fine. I tried deleting the plug-in and re-installing and activating but it still performs the same redirect to the Giveaway Page.
I was hoping there would be some erroneous redirect command somewhere telling the main homepage to redirect to the about page and that I could manually remove it. Is this a bug or incompatability issue between the WP version I'm using and Redirect?
I'm currently using WP version (3.0-RC2-15136). And Redirect Version 2.1.26
Can you help?
