Just plainly and simply doesn't work at all
By , for WP 4.2.1

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


I wanted it to work...but!
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin interferes with the admin internal links and was causing all sorts of 404 errors on it's own. Can't believe over 2M use it.

Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.3.2

Simply doesn't store anything I enter in the redirects box. Doesn't show an alert / error either. Does nothing.

Didn't work

I needed to stop wordpress to redirect an old slug to the new URL. It just didn't work.

not working (?)
By , for WP 4.0.1

not possible to open settings, except if applying the changes to code indicated in another post; after this plugin seems not to has any effect.

Don't be mystified...

When the developer releases two updates back-to-back that renders the plugin unusable, there's no reason for confusion on why it might get a low rating.

Stability/Functionality > Cosmetics

*I've used the plugin for some time but either the recent bugs I would suggest looking into another solution with a better track record for stability.

PS - There are no hosting or plugin conflicts. Just a broken plugin.

False feature claim
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin falsely claims to "automatically add a 301 redirection when a post's URL changes". It doesn't actually automatically do that!

The plugin that actually does that can be found here.

Not working

Try to use this plugin on my site. But unfortunately, this plugin seem not work.

2.3.6 broken in WP 3.3
By , for WP 3.3

Neither WordPress, nor Apache modules are working: I cannot create a redirect, the Ajax request never completes; if I manually refresh the page, no redirect shows.

Can I download an older version somewhere?

Did not work on some simple redirects

This plugin was very spiffy and looked great.

Unfortunately, it didn't work on some simple redirects. And all the spiffy GUI in the world can't fix that. So, one star.
