Quick Page/Post Redirect Plugin
[resolved] redirect based on text in content area (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I've been scouring wordpress for a plugin that redirects to a page of my choice depending on specific text located in the content area of a page. The reason this is important to me, is due to the following scenario;

    I have a wordpress plugin that displays real estate listings on my website which are pulled directly from my local MLS database. The problem arises when a listing comes off the market. A user looking for a listing find themselves on my site by doing a Google search. If the listing is no longer available, they are greeted by a page that says "listing no longer available" at which point they click the back button (eg. http://exceptional-results.com/mls-listings/C2506768/). This is killing my retention and possible business as I have control over how the plugin works and the developer believes this is not a worthwhile issue to address.

    Is there anything this plugin can do to address this?

    Please let me know if you require additional information or ideas how I can work around this.

    Ps. I plan on donating to a plugin with this type of functionality as I believe this is a worthwhile feature.

    Thank you

    Tom,
    Unfortunately there is not any easy way to accomplish this.

    It sounds like it might be more beneficial for you to find someone to customize your theme by checking for status of the listing and the keywords of the listing that are similar to the one that is being called. Then if the status is not available, you can either redirect to the best matching result or list other similar ones.

    Because of your unique need, I don't think a generic plugin is going to cut it - even a modified one might not. A custom designed function based on your specific needs might be the best way.

    Regards,
    Don
