I have a new version of the plugin quick page/post redirect plugin that is in the test phase right now. Anyone interested in testing it should email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a copy.
This latest version (5.0) addresses the issue of redirects on sites that are set for forced SSL or use portions of the site over SSL.
Additional fixes have been made as well as new enhancements like jQuery replacement of redirect links and properties (new window or rel=nofollow) in the entire site as well as better integration of Quick Redirects and custom post types.
Thanks for the support!
