Simple 301 Redirects
It's using the first URL I redirected to and won't update (4 posts)

    I want to redirect from http://www.consultantjournal.com/blog/second-job-ideas-and-tips-for-second-jobs) to http://www.consultantjournal.com/blog/second-jobs-ideas-and-tips-for-second-jobs. But I made a typo the first time (seconds) and I cannot get this plugin to recognize the change. I tried deleting the first plugin, creating a new one, closing the browser, deleting further attempts and creating new ones. No dice. It is still going to "seconds", which is not a real page. Other than creating a redirect from the error, can I get this plugin to stop using the old page? I assume it has cached it or something. Thanks.

    Make sure you clear out the browsers cache, close the browser, open it back up and re-check.

    Firefox: History > Clear History
    Chrome: Tools > Clear Browsing Data

    Thank you Michael Mann for mentioning this--

    Make sure you clear out the browsers cache, close the browser, open it back up and re-check.

    I was frustrated at not being able to figure out, after editing several redirects in Simple 301 Redirects, if the mistake was mine (and what it was) or the plugin's (it was not the plugin).

    Thanks for helping others.
