Support » Plugin: Redirection » Easier 410 redirections and more

  • Thanks for a great plugin.

    If it is possible, the following enhancements would be very useful:

    a. From 404 listing, create a 410 Gone status by selecting it from the dropdown – at the moment you need to create a 404 and then change it to a 410 which is annoying.

    b. When you delete a category, create a 410 redirect automatically. Ditto for deleting a tag. Ditto for unpublishing a page or post. And delete a redirect if you publish anything (page, post, tag, category etc.) to a slug which is subject to a redirect.

  • I agree with @eastdevonalliance – when I want to create 410 redirect you have to click all around, first 404 tab, than create 404 rule, then go to redirects, edit, change to 410, save…

    it would be much better to offer error 410 in dropdown menu directly on 404 tab where you see errors and create redirects

    Yes I agree also, this proposed solution for 410 would be great addition indeed. Cheers

    I have been working on an addon sort of plugin for Redirection that ties into when the post gets trashed or removed from the trash.

    It creates an entry in the wp_redirections_item table in the database for the Redirection plugin with the error code of 410, but not only that, it furthermore checks if the page is seen as 404 by WordPress and then checks to see if the page is marked as a 410 in the redirections items and serves up a 410 response header as well as looks for a theme’s template 410.php page (or defaults to the standard index.php with basic text saying the post is gone).

    It also works well with W3 Total Cache and WP Super Cache too.

    However, it would be better if the original Redirections plugin had 410 Gone in the list of drop-down items, as well as would also trigger 410 management with the post slug change monitor switch that is built into the plugin — using my enhancements.

    Should the author want to merge my code with his, I am more than willing to share the code.
