Redirection is designed to be used on any size site, from a few redirects to thousands of redirects.
It has been a WordPress plugin for over 10 years and has been recommended many times. And it’s free!
This is my go-to plugin for redirections. I’ve been using it for many years, and it continues to serve us well.
Easy and Simple Management
No knowledge of Apache or Nginx is required.
Create and manage redirects quickly and easily without needing Apache or Nginx knowledge. If your WordPress supports permalinks then you can use Redirection to redirect any URL.
Regular expressions are supported and you can create redirect patterns to match any number of URLs.
Posts and pages can be monitored for permalink changes, and redirections automatically created.
Add conditions for logged out users, visitors from certain sites, and mobile users.
In addition to straightforward URL matching you can redirect based on other conditions:
– Login status – redirect only if the user is logged in or logged out
– Browser – redirect if the user is using a certain browser
– Referrer – redirect if the user visited the link from another page
Track what redirects are actively used
View all redirects occurring on your site, including information about the visitor, the browser used, and the referrer. A ‘hit’ count is maintained for each redirect so you can see if a URL is being used.
Logs can be exported for external viewing, and can be searched and filtered for more detailed investigation.
Track 404 Errors
See where your 404 errors are and fix them directly from Redirection
Redirection will keep track of all 404 errors that occur on your site, allowing you to track down and fix problems.
My site is big and complex, things change often and URLs get broken.
Redirection is a vital tool for me, without it I’d need to rebuild the entire site
Apache & Nginx support
Power users can export redirections to Apache and Nginx
By default Redirection will manage all redirects using WordPress. However you can configure it so redirects are automatically saved to a
.htaccess file and handled by Apache itself.
If you use Nginx then you can export redirects to an Nginx rewrite rules file.
Import & Export
Full control over your data, and import from other redirect plugins
The plugin has a fully-featured import and export system and you can:
– Import and export to Apache
– Export to Nginx rewrite rules
– Copy redirects between sites using JSON
– Import and export to CSV for viewing in a spreadsheet
– Use WP CLI to automate import and export
You can also import from Simple 301 Redirects, SEO Redirection, Safe Redirect Manager, and WordPress old slug redirects.
This has always been a great plugin… can’t live without this one when launching a new site. Great work!
Wait, it’s free?
Yes, it’s really free. There’s no premium version and no need to pay money to get access to features. This is a dedicated redirect management plugin.
