Creates automatic redirects for 404 traffic and page suggestions when matches are not found providing better service to your web visitors.
It just needs a little user-experience tweaking in my opinion to make it an excellent plugin, but I install this on nearly every site of mine, especially ones that I've migrated from other platforms and I'm definitely satisfied with the results.
Note: I always turn off that 'automated redirect' junk because it never produced good results for me.
I used to like this plug-in a lot. Then it stopped working properly. The referrer functionality has a bug in it that causes that piece of data to stop being visible when a 404 error occurs. This renders the plugin difficult to use, and makes it impossible to tell how to nip problems with bad URL's in the bud.
Upon contacting the developer for advice, I was informed that the plugin is no longer supported, and there are no plans to do so.
This pluging strips the gclid tagging that adwords adds to the url. This results in your Adword activity not being properly tracked in Analytics.
The plugin does what it is supposed to do quite well, it redirects anything that is not a valid permalink url to a valid permalink url, however this has unexpected consequences for many important wordpress features.
Anything that uses endpoints or uses post data (woocommerce checkout, forgoten passwords, google analytics) will be redirected to a valid url that strips the post data and endpoint information.
Took a very long time to figure out that it was this plugin that was causing this problem and unfortunately as of the time of writing there is no clear warning that the plugin will have this effect.
This would be manageable if the settings page supported more dynamic ways of redirecting.
Works well for very simple static sites that only require redirects for misspelled urls.
This is a great plugin. Thank you
While I don't pretend to understand most of it, I do know this much:
-It logs 404 errors.
-It makes it easy for me to create redirects.
-It doesn't appear to have broken anything.
I'm bummed that it appears to no longer be supported. From what I've read the author is talented and, as a natural consequence, very busy. I'm sure this plugin is low on his list of priorities.
Nevertheless, I wouldn't think twice about donating more than a little to get an update. Please consider updating it Robert! Then give me a way to donate and I most certainly will.
I had to migrate my site using cache data and was not able to retain my original link structure. Once things went live again folks going to my most popular post would get a 404 and leave the site. This plugin made it very easy to redirect folks to where they wanted to go. If I had only found this before I tried to rewrite the PHP I would have saved a weekend of headache.
I have set a redirection, it was not taken into account. I was not using any cache plugin.
Simple and useful. It does what its made for easily
Great plugin, seems to be working great!!
I'm hoping the developer reads this and keeps it updated whenever needed!
Great plugins like this should be kept going! :)
