I’ve released a bug fix version of Simple 301 Redirects for WordPress. Version 1.02 fixes a couple of bugs and 1.03 adds PHP4 support, which I carelessly neglected in 1.02. It seems that a lot of people still use PHP4 even though it’s been officially dead (i.e. unsupported and with no security updates) for over 2 years. You can get the latest version of the plugin by updating from your admin system or by visiting the WordPress plugin directory.
Hi, Your Simple 301 Redirects plugin is awesome. Thanks for a great tool. I have a small question/request. We handle plugins for our site as SVN externals and right now the tagged versions o fyour plugin aren’t up-to-date with the latest trunk version. Any chance you could create the tagged folder for the latest version?
Thank you, David. Everything should be in order now. Sorry for that oversight; I’m not accustomed to working with SVN in the context of the WP plugin directory.
Can the plugin cope with redirecting a whole folder? and if so how?
Hi Steve. I’ve planned for a while to add support for wildcards (‘/somefolder/*’ would redirect the whole folder), but I’m sorry to say it isn’t in place yet.
That’s a shame, it would have saved me a lot of time! Any chance you could let me know if/when it is added?
Where is your redirects stored in database?
It is not working for all my redirects. I need to check to see if the entry is actually being saved.
The redirects are stored as a serialized string in the wp_options table with an option name of 301_redirects.
Question: I am using your301 plugin to redirect pages. I cannot get the URL’s to redirect with a %20 following the url. I had left a space when I put a link in an article on on someone else’s site and it is showing up as an error because the original article does not have a space. Any suggestions? Thanks
Hi, this is a simple and awesome plugin. Extremely useful. Thanks ..
@Maggie Magill – I use it with just a blank space and it works. Eg; /test page.html >> /real-test-page/
