With Redirect.txt, you can provide a simple list of URLs and their destinations with no post-creation bloat, no limitations, and just a simple editor.

There are many good redirect plugins that have been developed for years and have a strong code base. But we don’t like the idea of creating separate posts/entries for each redirection rule. We simply need to add, remove, and manage redirects in a simple and bulk way.

.htaccess and nginx configs are OK, but we don’t want to edit configs placed somewhere in server directories; we want to open our admin panel and add redirects easily. We also don’t care about wrong config configurations, which will stop your server.

Quick Links



  • Path redirects
  • Full URL redirects
  • Post ID redirects
  • RegEx redirects
  • Redirect logs
  • 404 logs


Open Tools Redirect.txt and provide a list of URLs here. Here is an example of available syntax:

# The links below will automatically use 301 redirects.
/hello: /new-hello

# Support for custom status
# To make 301, 302, 303, 307, or 308 redirects, use a code like this:
308: # All redirections below will use 308 redirect status.

# Support for post ID's
# Redirect from post with ID 1 to post with ID 8:
1: 8

# Support for external redirects:

# Support for RegEx redirects (automatically detected when the string starts with ^):
^/news/(.*): /blog/$1

# You can use as many comments as you want to categorize your links better.

The same rules without comments:

/hello: /new-hello


1: 8
^/news/(.*): /blog/$1
