FAQ

Can you create redirects relative to the site’s URL?

Yes. In the “Destination URL” field, just start your URL with a forward slash instead of “http://”. The site address, set in Settings > General, will automatically be prepended.

Is it possible to choose which post types Speedy Page Redirect applies to?

Yes. By default “page”, “post” and all public custom post types are taken into account. You can customize this selection via the gdd_spr_post_types filter. It should return an array with the applicable post types.

Example:

add_filter( 'gdd_spr_post_types', 'gdd_spr_post_types' );
function gdd_spr_post_types( $post_types ) {
    // Disable redirection for the "book" post type
    unset( $post_types['book'] );
    return $post_types;
}
Is it possible to customize the types of HTTP redirects to choose from?

Yes. By default you can choose from a 301 (permanent) and 302 (temporary) redirect. To customize this list, a filter called gdd_spr_statuses is available. It should return an array with the keys corresponding to the HTTP response codes. The array values are descriptions used in the dropdown list.

Note: if the statuses list only contains a single entry, the dropdown list is automatically omitted from the meta box.

Example:

add_filter( 'gdd_spr_statuses', 'gdd_spr_statuses' );
function gdd_spr_statuses( $statuses ) {
    // Remove temporary redirection from the list
    unset( $statuses[302] );
    return $statuses;
}
