How to export redirects? (11 posts)

    The plugin's features say you can export to CSV. And I see on the modules how you can "View as CSV" (or other file types) but when I click that link, it just goes to the normal "Redirects" list in the admin. No CSV is displayed or linked to. Am I missing something really obvious?

    I need to try completely removing this plugin to see if it's conflicting with something else, but don't want to loose all my redirects.

    Any help much appreciated.

    I'm also looking for this answer so I can see what the import style is for the CSV.

    There seems to be an error as I'm experiencing the same issue when attempting to download/export CSV, XML, Apache and RSS for both WordPress and 404 modules (Apache is disabled). The paging function seems to fail as well. When I click to view additional pages, "You have no redirections." is displayed. Using version 2.2.13.

    Regarding the inability to export redirects (it just refreshes the page):

    I can't believe this bug is still present after so many updates have been released! This is a really great plugin (probably the best redirect one out there) but it's baffling that this simple fix hasn't been rolled into core yet.

    Anyway, here's the fix:

    Basically, you just need to change:
    $_GET['page'] == 'tools.php?page=redirection.php'
    $_GET['page'] == 'redirection.php'

    in the file /plugins/redirection/redirection.php, around line #200

    Hopefully the plugin author will read this and fix for the next version!!!

    Thank God for open-source and the power of the hive mind. Sith Lord Goz, I owe you one.

    This plugin was last updated 14 months ago, hopefully an update will come down the pike this year to fix this issue in the core plugin. Is the developer of this plugin still actively maintaining it?

    Really not sure. The pagination and sort-order is also broken for any new redirect Groups you create. Both have tickets open, both have no progress. Sadly I think this just happens to free plugins sometimes, even when they are really good like Redirection.

    Actually a new version has been released 7 months ago (which includes the above mentioned fix).
    I only just discovered it myself. The author must have made uploaded it to a new tag in svn, but forgotten to update the 'stable version' tag in the readme of svn trunk...

    You can find it on the development page as version 2.3.2.

    @Sith Lord Goz - when you say

    Both have tickets open
    ? What do you mean ? Tickets where ? In which system ? I haven't been able to find a preferred place for the author to report bugs/fixes.

    Hey @jrf

    I just meant both issues (the broken pagination, and the broken drag-to-sort with custom Groups) have already had Support topics created for them (just like this one).

    The fact that the author hasn't (to my knowledge) commented on a Support topic in many months probably shows this isn't going to get the fixes included :(

    @Sith Lord Goz, thanks for your reply. I see what you mean.

    FYI: I've contacted John via other means and he's responded that he'll look at my bug fixes (including some more I found on the forum here). So fingers crossed.

    Awesome @jrf. Glad you could contact him. Hope to see an update soon (that's logged in the repository correctly).
