WordPress Redirect Plugin

Teli Adlam —  August 28, 2007

This new plugin by Urban Giraffe, called Redirection, makes it much easier to manage all the pages of your site that have moved or even to set up affiliate redirect links. That’s because the plugin can redirect folders that don’t exist and you have the option of setting 301 (permanent) or 302 (temporary) redirects.

So, if you’re on a budget and want to create some affiliate links using the redirect method, but don’t want to go through the headache of modifying the .htaccess file, saving the changes, and uploading every time, this plugin cuts out a few steps. Just log into your admin panel, create the new redirect and done. Plus, it also offers you some nice tracking.

  1. Help, I have WordPress 2.5 and the latest Redirection – http://urbangiraffe.com/plugins/redirection/ plugin but I need help.

    I had my blog here: http://alove4horses/blog/ but now it is here: http://alove4horses.com

    I tried to use the Regular Expressions code that is on the plugin page to remove the /blog/ from the URLs but it doesn’t seem to be working. I am still getting 404s for all the URLs with /blog/ in them.

    Regular Expressions code: /blog/(.*) => /$1

    Are you using WP2.5 and is the the Regular Expressions codes working in Redirection for you?

  2. Is anyone using ‘Regular Expressions’ with this “WordPress Redirect Plugin” and getting it to work correctly? I still need help with this.

    By the way, what plugin are you using to send out the comment email thank yous?

  3. Hi, thanks for the info. I’ve been using this plugin for awhile and its done great before, but now I’m noticing broken links that are indexed (in which I had fixed with redirection) … but they are still giving me 404 ERRORS! Do you know anything about this or have any suggestions?
    My site is listed in this comment, and one slug for example is /links (very simple). On my old hosting I had /links but when I transferred everything over to new hosting and began using wordpress, things got changed around quite a bit. My links page was named /goodfellas – I REDIRECTED IT (permanently), but the /index that is showing up in google search leads to a 404 Error on my site! Check it out and let me know what you think. I appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks and God’s blessings are best, Curt
