Does exactly what is says on the tin

Simple 301 redirects, what more can I say, it works! Which is just what you want from a plugin of this description. Might be nice if you could use regex in the matching field

Great but could be better

I really love this plugin. Very simple and does what it's supposed to do. But I wish there was an option to import a list of links instead of having to enter them one by one.

Had some difficulties - instead of troubleshooting switched to manual method

UPDATE

Figures after I proclaim the greatness of the plugin it inconsistently fails for me. Not sure exactly why because my process has been the same for each site, but who knows what is causing the conflict. Either way, I'd prefer not to rate this plugin at all, but since I can't delete my rating I'm lowering it to 3 stars for the inconsistency. Having looked through the support forums, I'm not the only one that has had the same problem. So, use at your own discretion and test, test, test!

Original Post----
I had to a multi-site blog to another domain with a different URL and blog structure. Had to redirect a lot of old URLs. Would've been a nightmare given how not user friendly doing it yourself with mod_rewrite is on Apache. (see http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html). This plugin makes it a snap, puts everything I need to keep track of in an easy to find spot in the admin, and uses 301 permanent redirects. Does everything I ask!

I love 'simple' and this plugin is just that. Many times we don't have direct access to client server configurations, so this plugin comes in very handy when you need to effectively manage some legacy inbound links.
