Support » Plugin: Redirection » Doesn’t work out of the box

  • I’m a little miffed at myself for trusting another plugin out of the box, this crashes whole site if it doesn’t work for your install, that’s way to invasive and would seem to be an issue with development approach, if I define a rule for a from and to url, why would you code in such a way that it affects all htaccess redirect rules, this doesn’t make sense. There would seem to be more work needed on validation that is not taking place. You have 68 of 395 reviews are 1 & 2 star, it is not the reviewers who are having an issue here. It’s a great idea and one sorely needed, but this project needs to evolve to be more proactive by using scripting to validate an environment to avoid conflicts and failures. It also should be recoded to not be as invasive or again have pre-validation routines run before allowing rules to be written. You must have a lot of data by now as to what happens when it doesn’t work, use that to improve the product. You do seem to have a lot of friends standing up for you here, so you can’t be all bad, lol.

    That’s a lot of suggestions, but few details – can you describe your issue more? The plugin doesn’t generally crash a site, and it’s not coded to affect all htaccess rules. What validation are you referring to?

    There are an infinite variation of servers and software and sometimes this causes problems. I would love it if this wasn’t the case, but it is, and so there will always be bad reviews by people because it doesn’t work for their particular setup. The majority of people experience no problem.

    I am very contactable, and the plugin makes it very easy to request support. I invite you to do the same.
