WATCH OUT! This plugin changes your affiliate IDs!
By , for WP 4.5.2

I used this plugin, but I find that it changes the links from my site to links with Shareasale.com affiliate IDs. Do not install! Your site will be at risk.

There's no support or documentation
By ,

There are many help threads that go unanswered. Many of which would not exist if the developer made proper documentation on how to export settings or re-install this plugin.

i got hacked thanks to this plugin
By , for WP 4.5

I got hacked through a robot going throught this plugin and amending my data base and my htaccess file, I have just deleted it. I was quite happy with the way it works, but is not gold everything that shines.

Does not work on WordPress 4.5
By , for WP 4.5

Talk about a headache!! It didn't work. I tried and tried and did all kinds of variation on the url redirect, referral. Name it. It just doesn't work. Then I went back to the Plugin listing for Redirection and noticed that it isn't tested for WordPress 4.5.

caused lots of hassle
By , for WP 4.4.2

This plugin caused me a massive headache. You can see my support thread (which was never answered) for the issues it caused.

I uninstalled it and now use Simple 301 redirects which is working as it should.

Import doesn't work - Not worth using without this feature
By , for WP 4.3.1

Manually adding redirects works fine (but I can manually add redirects to htaccess)

Tried using the import feature but it says "Successfully imported 157 URLs" yet when you go and check - it actually failed - I can't import any redirects... And I'm definitely not going to manually do it!

Had a bug which caused tables to not be created and site to fail completely
By ,

Not very impressive that this happens following an update - prior to that the plugin was in use for many months - but for this to happen during an update is simply unacceptable
