ETH Redirect to Latest Post


Once activated, a given slug will redirect to whatever is the most-recently-published post on the site. By default, the slug is latest, but it can be changed from the Permalinks settings screen.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/eth-redirect-to-latest directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
  3. If desired, change the slug from the ‘Permalinks’ screen in WordPress.


Can I redirect to something other than a post?

Yes, using the eth_redirect_to_latest_post_query_args or eth_redirect_to_latest_post_redirection filters introduced in v0.3.

I'm an event photographer, and thought to use a specified URL on my business cards:, or similar. I found, installed, and tested this plugin in under a minute, and it works. It works with about 20 other active plugins, some standards, some obscure. To say I'm grateful to the developer for writing such a plugin doesn't scratch it. Thank you so much!
