    This plugin does what it says on the cover. It redirects well; but it also stores session data in the WordPress database. My site now has over 125,000 entries from this plugin which are permanently stored in the database. That takes up storage and has slowed my site down significantly - especially in the WordPress admin.

    I've deleted the plugin and installed an alternative.

    Which alternative? I like Page Links To, works great but Redirection is centralized so is easier to manage, but not at the expense of speed eh. The "modified posts" feature is a little dicey while dev'ing, Redirection should toggle that off by default imo. If your site has over 125k in the db my guess is Redirection was active during dev and it ran as expected, storing each and every modified post? I just searched based on your comment, found Quick Page/Post Redirect. I assume this will be part of Jetpack soon ha, but am always interested in speeding things up. Do you have the 'modified posts' feature active, and if so, was it active while you were dev'ing the site?
