Support » Plugin: Simple 301 Redirects by BetterLinks » Can no longer see old redirects

  • Resolved socialink

    (@socialink)


    As many people have noted, your recent updates completely borked this plugin. I’m at Wp 5.7.1 and the latest 301 Redirects, and while the ones I’ve had for a few years appear to be working, I can no longer see them. I do see a JSON file in wp-admin/ for some reason that stores the old ones, I don’t know why that is present there given that all plugins should restrict themselves to wp-content. Can you advise on how to view the old (or existing) rules? Thank you.

    Hi Rafinkhan, unfortunately I cannot grant you access to the website to debug whats happening past the details I’ve given you, as it is a sensitive site. I still don’t get why a JSON file got written to wp-admin/ though, that seems like a big security risk.

    Same issue here…on about 20 sites that we manage.

    Updated the plugin to 2.03 over the weekend and all the redirects that were previously added disappeared from the admin UI.

    Strangely, you can still export them to a JSON file.

    Please push plugin update ASAP.

    @floodlightdesign,

    Seems like your issue has been resolved already as it’s due to Rest API being disabled from your Security Tool.

    @socialink,

    We have checked the error of yours and seems like Rest API is blocked on your end by your Server. Can you please check your Security tool and enable Rest API & check back?

    Your issue should be resolved afterward. Let me know how it goes. Thank you!

    Hi @rafinkhan, our company had a handful of sites that got affected by this plugin. Basically the homepage was working normally but the internal pages would redirect to a spam page and also all the redirect rules we added was completely cleared. The plugin version was between 2.0.0, 2.0.1, and 2.0.2. It looks like plugins that was already updated to 2.0.4 weren’t affected. We updated the plugin and restored a backup of the site so it looks like it’s back to normal now but we wanted to let you know that sites not updated to the latest version (2.0.4) are definitely vulnerable to spam redirecting

    Hi @julieeeeeee,

    Sorry to hear that, Thanks for letting us know. We have gradually patched our plugin with security enhancements recently so it won’t happen again.

    Thank you for your patience.
