[Plugin: Redirection] CSV import without Regex

  • Hi.

    Thanks for a great plugin. I am trying to import a CSV file using ‘<source url>,<destinationurl>’, and I have also tried importing using a previously exported file, pasting my new entries in to that. The import works, but all redirects are marked as Regex. I would like to import without all my entried been registered as Regex. Is there a way around that?

  • I managed to import a csv file of 607 redirects, none marked as regex.

    Windows comma-separated file
    format:
    cell A1: http://oldurl.com/old-article-link/
    cell B1: http://newurl.com/new-article-link/

    There should be some documentation around this on the plugin. Took me awhile to figure out how to mass import a list of redirects, but really easy once I knew the format.

    michele,

    can you post the content of the csv? because i could not generate the right csv.

    so can you post something like:

    /oldurl/,/newurl/,0

    ?

    I managed to import a csv file of 607 redirects, none marked as regex.

    Same format as I used. I ended up importing and removing Regex with mysql query.

    I’m actually having trouble importing with all marked as regex.

    I simply put old url in one cell, new url in cell beside. Next line for new redirect.

    A1: http://oldurl.com/whatever B1: http://newurl.com/whatever-new-link
    A2/B2: new redirect.
    A3/B3 etc

    Any ideas on how to get regex marked on import? Not keen on doing this manually…

    I am having same issue.
    A1 – A26 : List of Source URL
    B1 – B26 : List of Target URL

    If non of your entries are Regex, import them, and the search replace in mysql like this

    UPDATE wp_redirection_items SET regex = replace(regex, 1, 0);
