It's not working with WPML

Do you have plans to make it work with WPML?
Every time I add a new post in the secondary language Redirection plugin automatically creates a redirect from the secondary language home page to the most recent post.

Great plugin!

Awesome and well working plugin!

Errors with later updates
By , for WP 3.7

This is a good redirection tool when it works, but after recently updating the plugin, it completely failed and only rendered a white screen. I had to delete the plugin and go all the way back to a 2.2 version to find one that worked.

But when not having issues, it's an clear and easy to use plugin.

Works fine

Especially helpful after a complete revision of a site or other major changes like server or host.

Glitch on Admin Access
By , for WP 4.0

After a successful installation, I didn't see any Menu that let me access the configuration for this plugin. After checking the Plugins Page, and clicked on the provided link under the Redirection plugin's row, WordPress displayed an access-denied page.

You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page

Based on my previous experiences with plugin development issue, I took the opportunity to check the code, and look for the add_menu_page call and the capability that was set. So there was this function admin_menu(), with this line:

add_management_page( __( "Redirection", 'redirection' ), __( "Redirection", 'redirection' ), apply_filters( 'redirection_role', 'administrator' ), basename( __FILE__ ), array( &$this, "admin_screen" ) );

I changed the capability parameter, to this one:
add_management_page( __( "Redirection", 'redirection' ), __( "Redirection", 'redirection' ), 'manage_options', basename( __FILE__ ), array( &$this, "admin_screen" ) );

And this solved my problem. Hope this might be helpful for you.

Excellent plugin
By , for WP 3.9.2

While i was moving my website from hostgator to wpengine hosting; it was very complicated to setup redirects for my current urls. i tried working with .htaccess but most of the time it would break my website. This plugin is a life saver. Not only i was able to take care of my redirects but it also show me logs if there are any 404 pages. Very simple and easy to use.

Just needs more lines to add redirects
By , for WP 4.0

I had to add several 301 redirects for one site with a rather weird structure. While this plugin did the job it should, I had to save each redirect before I could add the next one, as only one line was kept available per turn. With a rather large list to redirect, this became a bit time consuming.
