After trying other 301 redirect plugins and being unsatisfied, I found this one, and let me tell you, it does exactly what it says it does. With my the other plugins I tried, I still got 404 messages, even though it looked like I set up everything right. Now my old links are redirecting properly. Also, the 404 'catcher' is great and really does work. It logs what 404s were generated by old links to your site, and what the requested URL was so you can easily match them up to an updated page.
