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.

Lots of Issues
By , for WP 3.5.1

Firsr, this plugin really slows down my admin area.

Second, if you deactivate and reactivate the plugin all of the 301 redirects are lost.

I added approx 300 redirects and when I went to add additional...the save period crashed my dedicated server and sent the cpu load through the roof.
