Just needs more lines to add redirects
By , for WP 4.0

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.

Very useful
By , for WP 4.0

Particularly useful after a transition from an old site with different URLs. Could use a little more documentation on the regular expression usage.

Works as mentioned
By , for WP 4.0

Works great! Sadly the CSV import does NOT work in the latest version. A simple downgrade + import files and Upgrade was the solution.

CSV file upload needs to be fixed

As mentioned earlier, use your plugin editor screen and fix these two files mentioned here: . Thank you for that fix!

Great...but I found an issue
By , for WP 3.9.2

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.

saved me a lot of trouble

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.

Awesome, but a bit tricky!

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

Now you can see how it's working for my website:

A particularly useful plugin
By , for WP 3.5.2

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.

Works But Navigation is Confusing
By , for WP 3.5.1

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.

Learn Regular Expressions Before Using
By , for WP 3.5.1

You need some education on regular expressions at the beginning. After that you can customize your permalinks.
