Simple 301 Redirects
Is a wildcard available? (6 posts)

    I'd like to redirect a large number of subdirectories and files to a single page, is there any way to use a wildcard character, something like "*", in your plug-in? For example, such that

    • /news/labels/topic1.html
    • /news/labels/topic2.html
    • /news/labels/topic3.html
    • etc.

    all redirect to http://www.mysite.com/category/news/ without me having to make separate entries for each page? something like "/news/labels/*"?

    Hello,
    Sorry about the delay in my response. I haven't been checking this forum as regularly as I'd like.

    There is currently no wildcard feature available, but I've had a lot of requests for it so I will look into different ways to implement it and try to get it into a future release when I have a bit of time to spend on it.

    Any update on the possiblity of a wildcard for use?

    I'm like to redirect:

    /author/name1
    /author/name1/page/2
    /author/name1/page/3
    /author/name2
    /author/name2/page/2
    /author/name2/page/3
    etc.

    all as /author/* to /blog

    Any thoughts on that without having to redirect line by line per author per page?

    Hi Ghettofunk,
    Still no support for wildcard input as I'm still not sure what the best way to implement. The suggestion to use *-style wildcards seems most common and it's the simplest (in keeping with the plugin name) so I'll probably implement that. I'm hoping to finally get to it this weekend but can't make any promises. As of this very moment entering redirects line-by-line is still the only option.

    Any update on the wildcards?

    With the plugin redirection gone totally dead, this is the one hope left :(

    I'd love to know too - if a wildcard feature was available, it would be exactly what I need!
