Redirection is a WordPress plugin to manage 301 redirections and keep track of 404 errors without requiring knowledge of Apache .htaccess files.
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.
As mentioned earlier, use your plugin editor screen and fix these two files mentioned here: . Thank you for that 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.
You need some education on regular expressions at the beginning. After that you can customize your permalinks.
