underscores are not ignored (5 posts)

    this is such an amazing plugin.

    my suggestion is that you add a 'ignore underscores' button because i think they should be treated as spaces and not as connectors

    examples:
    this real URL that uses a underscore is not redirected by this plugin:
    http://www.ihosopera.com/about_history.html
    but this version with a hyphen (this is not a real url but entering it triggers the automatic redirection)
    http://www.ihosopera.com/about-history.html
    properly redirects to this page
    http://www.ihosopera.com/about/

    eample#2
    http://www.ihosopera.com/events_kimisis.html
    is not redirecting but using a hyphen again makes it work
    http://www.ihosopera.com/events-kimisis.html
    it goes properly to
    http://www.ihosopera.com/repertoire/kimisis/

    so treating hyphens and underscores the same is my new feature request.

    I missed that and I will make the change in the next release. I have started making changes and I am re-organizing the way the plugin works.

    I should really use the WP function that creates permalinks because that takes out some words changes underscores to dashes as well as many other transformations. This would make the search parameters more like a real permalink.

    Thanks for the idea. I will give it some thought and you should see it when I find time to release the next version.

    +1 on this feature request -- I also have a site on a different CMS that uses underscores instead of hyphens in the URLs.

    Best,
    Dave

    Underscores - the plugin is sitting in pieces on my hard drive and I have to put it back together again in order to release it. I have already added the underscore, and with luck I should find time to release it in a week or so.

    This plugin has stopped working for me since updating to WordPress 3.3.1. Any word on when that update is coming? Great plugin otherwise!
