Nice, but no 404 errors
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is a nice, clean plugin. It's easy to understand and works. But it does not show you the 404 errors your website is generating. So if you have changed your website structure and want to make sure that all requests coming from Google, Facebook, and all other websites are still getting a proper result, this plugin does not help you much.

Good plugin

Works well, it let me do what I need to do.

Limited functionality; can't use
By , for WP 4.0

Here's why I can't use this plugin due to its limited functionality:

1. Yahoo Hosting (not my choice; choice of client's previous developer) forces WordPress to be installed in a subdirectory -- for example, mydomain.com/blog.

2. I wanted to use this plugin to redirect old, crappy URLs to my new and improved ones. For example, mydomain.com/old-crappy-url.html to be redirected to mydomain.com/blog/snazzy-url-with-relevant-keywords/.

3. This particular redirect plugin forces a mydomain.com/blog/ as the root of all originating URLs since Yahoo Hosting forced me to install WordPress in the /blog/ subdirectory.

I can't redirect all the old crappy URLs that had mydomain.com as their parent directory. Therefore, I can't use this plugin. It should allow people to totally customize the FROM url.

CSV Upload does not work
By , for WP 3.9.1

I've followed the exact CSV format to upload the redirects as specified in the support and it will not work. There is hardly any useful documentation for this plugin.

Perfect plugin.

Sometime ago I moved my site from plain .html to WP, forgot about a trail of backlinks. Installed this plugin and within seconds had the backlinks pointing to the correct pages.

Highly recommended.

Works like a Dream

Tried a few 301 plugins that all seemed a bit complicated, this one just works and allowed me to migrate my small blog from DasBlog to WordPress leaving 301 redirects for my old URLs.

DUDE! Don't look for another 301 plugin.

This plugin is perfect. I mean PERFECT.

First, it works. This week I was moving a Microsoft .ASP site to a new WordPress site. The customer had had a lot of SEO work done on the .ASP site that was ranking well. I used this plugin to map the old .ASP pages to the new WordPress permalinks. Then launched the site, went to Google, found his SEO pages in the SERPs, clicked a link and BOOM. It redirected beautifully.

Second, it let's you do anything you want. You can manually type in the new URLs, or choose them from existing pages, posts, etc. Very nice.

Third, it works with the latest WP, I had zero activation problems and zero problems saving data.

Don't look for another 301 plugin...you're really wasting your time if you do. Thanks to the author for this fine piece of work.

Simple and usefull!

No more htaccess anymore! Thanks a ton guys!

Works great & redirect drop down menu saves time
By , for WP 3.9

Easy to use interface. I especially like the drop down menu that allows quick redirects to pages, posts, and custom post types.

Features wishlist:

  • Allow sorting of Request URL and Redirect To headings
  • An option to reset all of the hits
