Need a new REDIRECT plugin! (5 posts)

    Well, it does not appear that Redirectify is being updated any longer. I've been using it on my blog for over a year now and have had no problems until this week, when I tried to add a new page that would redirect to an external URL. Instead of working as in the past, it now just saves the new PAGE as a DRAFT. And it's not even saved as a draft PAGE but a draft POST. Nothing I can do will actually publish this new page with the redirect key activated on it. Something obviously happened in some recent WordPress updates to prevent this plugin from working on new pages (as it still works on older pages created in older versions of WP).

    So, I need to find a NEW plugin that does the same thing as Redirectify did, but I need one that works on current (version 2.2+) WordPress releases.

    Anyone?

    Thanks,

    Just tried this again after switching themes. Still does not work.

    In the WP backend (2.2.1) I went to Write > Write Page > entered page title > selected "redirect" in Custom Fields > entered target URL for Value > clicked "Add Custom Field" > clicked "Publish"...

    After that, it takes me to Page Management, and the page I just created is not listed there! I have to click on the "Manage" tab and there it is, listed as a Draft I created... and when I open that Draft, it's showing as a draft post, not even a draft PAGE.

    So yeah, I'm still having the same problem with this plugin. Can anyone help me fix this? Has this happened to anyone else? I'm hoping there might be another redirect plugin I can try instead.

    Thanks,
    kopper

    It took quite a big of digging, but I was able to find a previous topic on this same problem. Here's what you do to fix it:

    First, create the Page without the Custom Field, then after you Publish the Page, go back and edit the Page, and add the Custom field(s).

    Works!
