Never get a 404 page not found again. If you have restructured or moved your blog, this plugin will find the right post or page every time.
I have been using this plug-in for years now. It is excellent and has more features than you might think.
I installed the Permalink Finder Plugin, and changed the permalink from wordpress post to name only now the webmaster seems like duplicato linque. How do I fix this?
I have tried working with other redirect plugins—404 Redirected is a great one for logging and managing 404 errors and permanently redirecting them—but what we really want is No 404s to begin with! If you have a simple site especially, without hundreds of unique blog post titles, this is the simplest way to avoid 404s from typos and small url changes.
I heart it.
I agree with mhannigan, this plugin belongs in the WP core. It has always worked flawlessly on my sites (since v3.4.2) and covers so many link errors and omissions.
Until it's included as part of the core, I strongly recommend this as a necessary plugin!
This plugin SHOULD be included in the WordPress code base. There is no reason NOT to have this plugin. It proactively resolves many potential problems with permalinks, changing permalink structure, and incorrect search engine indexing of permalinks. There was a time (up until about 15 minutes ago) that if a sitemap was submitted to Google with a few thousand incorrect permalinks and you resubmitted it correctly, it could still take DAYS to crawl those bad links, give you a huge report of crawl errors to resolve and then finally index the correct ones that you submitted immediately after. Now, everything in between is eliminated. From what I've seen so far, I could submit a sitemap with ANY permalink structure, change the structure on my site to something ENTIRELY different, and this plugin will not only prevent me from getting crawl errors, but will allow the correct page to be indexed and/or send the user to the correct page, almost magically. Before this plugin, a broken link could sit on page one of a search result for weeks and be useless to me. Now, there is no such thing as a broken link. I LOVE this plugin. It's a MUST have!
