The problem I have with it—and I’m running the latest, 0.9.4.2—is that the Fix Redirect function appears to not do anything at all. My expectation is that 301 redirects would be followed, and the old link fixed to point at the new target. Is this not the case?
Hmm, so what happens when you use the “Fix redirects” action? Is there an error message, or does it say it fixed them without actually doing anything?
Another thing you could do is verify that the plugin is correctly detecting the redirected-to URL. To do that, click the “Details” link of one of the listed redirects and check the “Final URL” value. It should be different from the original URL.
Have you already updated to the latest version (0.9.5)? Also, could you post the HTML that corresponds to the problematic link? Maybe there’s something in the link code that confuses the editing routine.
The post HTML looks fine, but that isn’t saying much. WP applies a number of automatic transformations to post content before displaying it, so the HTML that I see at that link can be entirely different from what shows up in your editor and is stored in the database (and thus seen by BLC).
Try this debug version. It will output a number of status messages when you use the “Fix redirects” option, which should provide some clues as to why the redirect doesn’t get fixed. Post those messages here.
