    Hi, Gotmoxie. This is an issue we’re tracking that will likely be solved in a future update to the plugin. My apologies for the inconvenience in the meantime!

    On my site it just does not works.
    The Permalink does not work and always shows the search screen.

    Like this:


    WordPress 4.3.1 thema: Weaver II Pro.

    Hi, Karesansui.

    Please could you try going to Settings → Permalinks and clicking the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page? (You do not need to make any changes.) You may find the redirects work for you after this.

    Great Nick,
    this did the job…. strange … I did change the default months a go.

    Thanks, Piet,


    Just wanted to add my voice to this request.

    Simple URLs are showing in site search for me as well. It would be great to see this fixed.



    I’m having this same issue but can’t find a solution anywhere.

    Nick, is this issue in the pipeline still to be fixed, please?

    Thanks for checking in, @joephilpott.

    There’s a patched version from a contributor here that includes a fix for URLs appearing in the site search. You’re welcome to download and try it if you wish.

    You’d need to:

    1. Deactivate the current version of the plugin on your site. (You won’t lose existing Simple URLs data, but it’s always a good plan to take a database backup anyway.)

    2. Download the above zip, then install and activate it.

    You should see that URLs are excluded from search results by default.


    The patched version seems to have done the trick. Thanks!

    Will this patch be rolled into the next update of Simple URL? Ideally, I’d like to just keep track of one plugin considering how many sites I manage.

    @coffeehero I don’t have a timeline for the next update I can share at this time. I’m sorry for the inconvenience for now!
