Redirection is a WordPress plugin to manage 301 redirections and keep track of 404 errors without requiring knowledge of Apache .htaccess files.
I got loops instead of redirections...
Simple install, works as expected.
Very convenient feature that redirection is created automatically when slug of post is changed.
But adding redirect button for article on "404 log" does not work
I also find the article useful https://managewp.com/the-best-way-to-set-up-redirects-in-your-wordpress-blog
It also sometimes add extra slash at the beginning of source url...
What happens when you uninstall it or plugin broke?
You will still have the old url ? or plugin fix the 404 pages and redirect it automatically to your server?
I like the plugin
I've tested over 10 plugins and this one working much better.
At the beginning i had a problem with Apache and the other stuff like .htaccess
It is a bit complicated to find how you can redirect anything you write after your old url/ to same destination in new url/
Finally that was very easy: Just select WordPress in Group
This is a particularly interesting plugin -- we use it to track "fake" landing page URLs and introduce redirects for slugs like /mytracker
That way we have a way to track specific links inbound and on site for particular campaigns. You can even use a redirect to a media file to see how often certain images load. The groups feature is also useful to aggregate trackers under 1 name.
Only 4 stars due to 1 issue: redirects to the mailto: url seem to strip out the @ sign creating a malformed new email header.
Otherwise really great - I hope it keeps getting maintained or just becomes part of core -- it's that important.
Nice clean solution.
I checked to see how it works and it is a nice dynamic solution without hacking the .htaccess file. No extra features - worked right away.
NOTE: to those who mentioned that the instructions are out of date. To use this:
Plugins >> Redirection >> Settings
Tools >. Redirection
Has heaps more features then I thought at first. Particularly good was where you could see all the failed 404's that people were getting and fix these.
Installed on WP 3.5.2 and all is working fine. Nice plugin.
It worked well and smoothly when I changed my permalinks' structure, taking out that awful "/index.php/" from it. It is fluid and transparent to visitors. All I had to do was to include a single url to url redirection, checking also the "regular expression" box.
That was exactly what I needed, so present permalink structure works as if the old one was also valid. No lost links, no lost search engine results. Worth a PayPal donation!
