    This plugin completly removed more than 1000 redirected pages from simple 301 redirect plugin...is it posible to get all those links back somehow ?

    Other plugins don't do that...so I didn't expect it here to happened also

    radojica,
    The plugin should not have removed anything - but the problem might have been that either the request timed out or your PHP post settings are not high enough (and in some cases, there may not be enough memory to process that many posted items).

    Unfortunately, I don't think you can retrieve them, as they are stored in the options table as a serialized array. You would need to access your MySQL database, look for the redirect option, and then check to see what was saved, if anything. If there is a partial serialized array, you may be able to recover some of the redirects, but you would have to fix the array, re-save it, then look at the redirects settings again to see what was there. A whole lot of work involved - and if you are not familiar with serialized arrays, a real pain in the butt.

    Sorry that you had issues. I went in an double checked this to make sure there really was not any limit - and I was able to add 9000+ redirects before I had a problem - and it was that my PHP post data settings had to be increased that was the actual problem - not the plugin itself. When I increased that I could add 5000+ more... so the plugin supports as many as you add.

    One thing that I always suggest to anyone who asks, is: If you have more than a few dozen redirects that are needed, you should probably look into .htaccess redirects. You can do so much more with them using patterns & regular expressions, and the overhead to the server is almost nothing. When using the plugin, WordPress has to be loaded, scripts run to verify everything, and then the redirect is processed... that all takes server time and resources - .htaccess is run before anything else happens. Of course, that is not always possible - but when it is, and you have a lot of redirects, I always recommend that method.

    Warm regards,
    Don Fischer

    prophecy2040,

    It looks like you didn't read message completely...redirections are removed by other plugin...

    anyway thanks for answering :)

    I was lucky to have it opened in another browser so that is how I saved it.
