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.
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.
Particularly useful after a transition from an old site with different URLs. Could use a little more documentation on the regular expression usage.
Works great! Sadly the CSV import does NOT work in the latest version. A simple downgrade + import files and Upgrade was the solution.
Thank you for the quick fix!
My site has about 400 404s. Every time I use the plugin, I get through about 15 or so. Then it sort of "freezes." And then my website goes down for about 10 minutes...The whole page goes white and there is a small message in the top left that reads "error." http://www.51blocks.com.
I'm an SEO specialist and I use the plugin on many clients websites...it's only on my website that this happens, but I'm not of the cause.
I needed to redirect from an old blog structure (posts ending in php) to a new (posts as directories). This worked great for that using a regular expression, when all my efforts at modifying .htaccess failed.
However, there's a "delete everything" button at the bottom of the options page that's the same color as "update" a little above it and doesn't pop up any warnings (unlike deleting redirects individually from the main page), which I found out the hard way. Fortunately I only had a few redirects to recreate, but that really deserves more of a warning to the user.
I've tested over 10 plugins and this one working much better.
At the beginning i had a problem with Apache and the other stuff like .htaccess
It is a bit complicated to find how you can redirect anything you write after your old url/ to same destination in new url/
Finally that was very easy: Just select WordPress in Group
This is a particularly interesting plugin -- we use it to track "fake" landing page URLs and introduce redirects for slugs like /mytracker
That way we have a way to track specific links inbound and on site for particular campaigns. You can even use a redirect to a media file to see how often certain images load. The groups feature is also useful to aggregate trackers under 1 name.
Only 4 stars due to 1 issue: redirects to the mailto: url seem to strip out the @ sign creating a malformed new email header.
Otherwise really great - I hope it keeps getting maintained or just becomes part of core -- it's that important.
Just started using it and it seems to work a treat. I am using it to redirect some searches to their equivalent tags to save resources and to prevent timeouts.
Navigation is a little confusing.
