Support » Plugin: Simple Website Redirect » It redirects me even when I’m logged in

  • I tried to add this to the support area but I was unable to do so. The plugin works great, however it doesn’t allow me to be logged in and work on my website. Everything is up to date too. Other than that it’s spot on.

    It should allow you to login to the site and view anything within the WordPress administration area.

    If you happen to use a page builder, those are often loaded outside of the WordPress administration area (usually on the front end of the site, even though it may not appear as such) which may result in you being redirected or weird bugs when trying to edit.

    If you provide your site URL, I can poke around a bit.

    Thanks, Micah! I can access the admin area, but I’m unable to view the website’s front end when I am logged in. The website is: http://memorymakersco.com/

    Ah, yes. This plugin will redirect you whether you are logged in or not if you visit any page on the front end of the site.

    If you click the “Advanced” section, you can enter specific URL paths that you don’t want to redirect (but that won’t redirect your visitors either). These would look something like: /page-1/, /page-2/.

    Another option is to use the query parameter exclusion field to enter a unique value such as dontredirect and when you append ?dontredirect to the end of a URL it won’t redirect. This ensures that other’s are redirected, but you aren’t. Just keep in mind that you’d have to copy the URL you want to visit, append that ?dontredirect bit and then paste that into your browser to see that page.

    You bring up a great point that there are use cases where you don’t want to redirect for logged in users. Perhaps this is something I can add later.
