Safe Redirect Manager
[resolved] Redirect for a URL that Does Not Exist? (3 posts)

    It would be nice to be able to redirect a URL for a page that does not exist to a page that does exist. For example, if I have a page titled "About Us" (slug "about-us") and someone types in example.com/about (without the "us"), that non-existent page and URL will redirect to the "about-us" page (which does exist). Does that make sense? If not, let me know. Thanks for the plugin!

    That definitely makes sense. Unfortunately it is difficult to accomplish. We would have to search every existing page/post/tag/category slug and find the closest match to the 404 slug. This is kind of a tricky algorithm to implement. Feel free to put this up on Github.

    Thanks for your comment! I did find another plugin that does just want I need. It's called "Redirection".
