bbRedirector

bbRedirector makes it easy to redirect a page to another location using absolute urls.

Will this plugin work on WP MU?

Yes, it should work, but the settings are on a per blog base. So you need install and set it up per blog.

How can I setup default redirection location for all pages?

  1. Add bbredirector-page-template-default.php template page to your themes' directory e.g. /wp-content/themes/default
  2. Change the Settings of the bbRedirector plugin according to your wishes
  3. For every page you want to use the default redirection, select the page template Page Redirect Default

Tip: You can add all the supplied page template examples to your themes' directory and select the one you need on a per page base

How can I setup redirection for a page without customfields?

I presume you know a bit about PHP and know how to create WordPress templates? Otherwise I would not recommend doing this.

  1. Add bbredirector-page-template-custom.php template page to your themes' directory e.g. /wp-content/themes/default
  2. Change the arguments in the code of the template according to your wishes
  3. For every page you want to redirect to this 'hardcoded' url, select the page template Page Redirect Custom

Tip: You can add all the supplied page template examples to your themes' directory and select the one you need on a per page base

I get an empty or white page?

  • If you use the bbredirector-page-template-default, make sure the allow default redirection option is ticked when using the default template.
  • If you've created your own page template, make sure no characters including whitespace are left over calling the bbrd_redirect() function.
  • Check if the url contains any whitespace or weird characters.

Can you tell me a bit more about the details?

The plugin uses 'cascading redirection' e.g. it first checks if a redirect url was given as parameter and uses this. If no redirect url parameter was found, it checks if a page id parameter was supplied. If a page id was found it uses a metakey (by default redirect_url) and the page's id to check for a redirection url in the custom field of the page. If none was found or no page id was given the plugin checks if 'allowed to use the default redirection' is enabled(default). If it is enabled it will use the redirection url set in the plugin settings, which by default is the site url set in the WordPress settings. If 'allowed to use the default redirection' was disabled the redirection will fail silently and return a boolean false.

Due to the 'cascading redirection' it is easy to create different type of templates, as you can see in the supplied example templates.
