Defined Works, Auto URL for Non-Defined Broken
By , for WP 4.2.2

For all the defined links it is working perfectly, and logs attempted URL's that are not defined.

The Auto URL entered in Options seems to do nothing. I created a new page asking visitors to update their bookmarks, but this only displays for the old site pages that I decided to skip at the new site, and specifically defined a redirection for this.

I've used this plugin for years

I love this plugin I've used it for years on a load of websites never had any problems with it. Only thing I'd say is it should be more obvious when it auto creates redirects for you when you change permalinks which is a great feature but I remember sometimes being very confused.

Other than that it's great!

It's a good plugin to manage the redirection. It helps me to fix the broken link issues and all 3O1/3O2 solutions ;) Thanks a lot for this.

Love it!

Tested in local and live sites and works like a charm :)

Must-have with a Website Change
By , for WP 4.2.2

We switched from an old Frontpage, static website to a new WordPress site. We installed this plugin, then watched all the 404s and created redirects for all those old pages people were going to. This plugin is a HUGE help for this!

Just plainly and simply doesn't work at all

Sadly, this is utter fail. Redirects to nonsense URLs like


useful plugin with responsive developer
By , for WP 4.2

Appreciated the quick fix after a recent WordPress upgrade. This plugin helped me after redirecting from another domain and switching my permalink structure, so I could implement redirects w/o having to learn how to code htaccess to avoid impacting my other domains. (One domain in root, subdomains in subfolders, so difficult to redirect using htaccess w/o impacting subdomains.) Being able to use regex in both origin and target fields easily was also helpful. This isn't so easy in some of the other redirection plugins. Many thanks!

Love the automatic redirects
By , for WP 4.1.2

Automatic redirects are a common sense addition to WordPress. Plugin is useful for redirecting common search queries to landing pages.

Great Plugin When It Works
By , for WP 4.2

This is a really great plugin. I love being able to add in redirects without having to go through the htaccess file, and I love how it keeps a count of how many times the redirect has been used. The 404 discovery feature is nice as well.

The plugin does not seem to be working with the latest version of WordPress (4.2) however.
