4000 redirections all wrong - how to forward all at once... (5 posts)

    Love the plugin. Have 4000 pages that no longer exist. Need to redirect all of them to one url. I imported the CVS file so all the old urls are in the system. At the moment they all 404. I would like to avoid going to each individual url and typing in the home page.

    How can I affect the redirection of all broken urls at once?

    Note, I have searched high and low for information on creating a "redirection xml' based on the CVS file provided by Google Webmaster Tools. That would be idea...

    I redirected 40 similar links by using regular expression (click on regex box) /abc/html- as source and /def/hij as target

    so all my broken links started with abc/html- and I redirected them using one redirect.

    I am not certain if regex applies only to the source URL and not the target/new URL

    The instructions located in the below link indicate the regex applies only to the source URL-----if this is wrong I think someone will let us know

    Success! Thank you for that bit of info. There were a few issues I had not seen with the bulk import.

    Is there a way to sort redirects by hits or last access? At the top there are tabs but nothing to click on. Desperately want to avoid sorting through 40 pages of urls in order to find the ones being accessed

    I reverted back to version 2.2.11
    This "turned on" the headers that let you order by hits, date and url.

    Deactivate and then delete the current version (.13) then download ver 2.2.11 available in the developers tab, then use the add new plugin upload option.

    This also seemed to "fix" the reorders not working problem I was having.

    logging is still not working in case anyone can suggest a fix for it.

    If you need more details, just post here.
