The plugin author has never demonstrated much interest in maintaining the plugin but some kind soul seems to have taken it upon themselves to fork it to fix a security issue: https://github.com/GDKeller/404-redirected.
I used 404 Redirected with much success for several years, several years ago, but had recently uninstalled it. I am trying it on a staging site; when I activated it, there was a warning banner, "The plugin generated 693 characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin." but otherwise no noticeable ill effects and the plugin seems to do what it has been designed to do. Obviously, your mileage may vary. Fingers x'd
Not been updated for 2 years.
Had a problem with it creating error messages on the server which were dealt with in this post.
Otherwise, works alright.
at first i was looking for a wildcard option. After starting to use this i realize this is a much better approach. have not tried the auto because we do not have corresponding pages for 99% of the pages that were removed.
It just needs a little user-experience tweaking in my opinion to make it an excellent plugin, but I install this on nearly every site of mine, especially ones that I've migrated from other platforms and I'm definitely satisfied with the results.
Note: I always turn off that 'automated redirect' junk because it never produced good results for me.
This is a great plugin. Thank you
While I don't pretend to understand most of it, I do know this much:
-It logs 404 errors.
-It makes it easy for me to create redirects.
-It doesn't appear to have broken anything.
I'm bummed that it appears to no longer be supported. From what I've read the author is talented and, as a natural consequence, very busy. I'm sure this plugin is low on his list of priorities.
Nevertheless, I wouldn't think twice about donating more than a little to get an update. Please consider updating it Robert! Then give me a way to donate and I most certainly will.
I had to migrate my site using cache data and was not able to retain my original link structure. Once things went live again folks going to my most popular post would get a 404 and leave the site. This plugin made it very easy to redirect folks to where they wanted to go. If I had only found this before I tried to rewrite the PHP I would have saved a weekend of headache.
Simple and useful. It does what its made for easily
Great plugin, seems to be working great!!
I'm hoping the developer reads this and keeps it updated whenever needed!
Great plugins like this should be kept going! :)
Great plugin, but the only problem is that it is not fully multilingual. It gives the option to direct to multilingual versions of pages, but not multilingual versions of categories and tags. Anyway, it's still great!
