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.

Only works if import htaccess
By , for WP 4.1.1

I am using v2.3.14 of this plugin and it works great. The CSV import doesn't work though. The only way I can get the import to work is to import an .htaccess file. When I do it works like a charm though.

The logs are handy
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin worked nicely at first, but recently all of the regex redirects stopped working and I can't get them working again. It left a lot of urls exposed...

The logs are a handy resource. They can be eye opening.

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.

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.

just 1 suggestion
By , for WP 3.8

this is a great plugin,
i am using it to redirect traffic to different urls.
i have more than 2000 redirects, every time when i select to show 25 or 10 rows, it is loading all links than showing more than 50 rows, please resolve this issue. i want to show 10 rows.

In general it works, but buggy
By , for WP 3.7

Simple install, works as expected.
Convenient UI.

Very convenient feature that redirection is created automatically when slug of post is changed.

But adding redirect button for article on "404 log" does not work

I also find the article useful https://managewp.com/the-best-way-to-set-up-redirects-in-your-wordpress-blog

It also sometimes add extra slash at the beginning of source url...
