    I love this plugin, thanks for taking the time to put it together. I've just deployed it for use here, with a few improvements I thought you guys might be interested in:


    The updates I've made include:

    • Removed deprecated functions
    • Updated the redirect_404() function to instead redirect to the new URL - This was very important to us for usability and SEO

    If you're interested in checking out the updates I've posted them into a Gist:

    Kevin, can you or someone else confirm my understanding of the incrementor code. I was reviewing the code before I use it, and I don't think the uniqueness counter is going to behave as people might intuitively expect.

    Its fast and simple, but it looks like if there are two Jim's, the first one could be Jim and the second could change to Jim4 if there were duplicates of two other names that weren't even Jim.

    Example user list: Jim, Sally, Sally, Matt, Matt, Jim
    Results in: Jim, Sally, Sally2, Matt, Matt3, Jim4

    Am I interpreting the code correctly? Has anyone tested this?
