Thank you @codepuncher for the suggestion.
I looked into it, and it does seem like that would achieve what I am looking for, but if I were to use the following code:
This would also turn off the useful ability for WordPress to redirect users to the closest matching pages across the entire site.
I read that I can do page-by-page special redirect rules, however I am worried that may introduce more problems into my setup as I am not proficient in PHP.
I am left wondering how the original behaviour (no wp-admin redirect to /wp/wp-admin) in Bedrock was accomplished, because in the link that I highlighted above it appears not having a redirect was the default behaviour.
This has got me curious whether:
- Originally in Bedrock redirects were off for the entire WordPress site?
- Or they had custom code to prevent that specific redirect on wp-admin?
- Or at some point between now and 2014 it was decided that redirecting wp-admin to /wp/wp-admin was a good idea (even though no-redirect added a slight benefit to security - as highlighted by a Roots dev in the post I found and linked above)
