Redirection is a WordPress plugin to manage 301 redirections and keep track of 404 errors without requiring knowledge of Apache .htaccess files.
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.
Just started using it and it seems to work a treat. I am using it to redirect some searches to their equivalent tags to save resources and to prevent timeouts.
Navigation is a little confusing.
You need some education on regular expressions at the beginning. After that you can customize your permalinks.
Thanks for the plugin. Worked well when I wanted to change the permalinks of a few blog posts but have social media and links still work.
Great plugin, redirect things easily, it also record modified post redirection so we can edit it when we make mistakes.
Drawback, it records too much data, and the delete links is so small i have a hard time finding it. It should be red and bold and big because deleting redirection is an important feature for redirection plugin.
This plugin is better than pretty link though, because you don't have to scroll a lot to find links.
Has a lot of great features, for advanced redirects.
