Redirection allows you to manage all your 301 redirects and monitor 404 errors. With Redirection, you don’t have to edit your .htaccess file directly – you can create and manage redirects from inside your WordPress website’s admin backend. It’s easy to install, configure and use:
To install, follow these instructions. Make sure you don’t have another redirect plugin installed or else plan on transferring those redirects to this new plugin, then deactivating and uninstalling the old redirect plugin.
Tools > Redirection
Default settings work well. Click on the Options tab if you wish to change settings.
For simple page-to-page redirects:
- Navigate to Tools > Redirection
- Source URL: enter the URL that you want to redirect somewhere else, minus the domain name. For example: /oldpage/that/needs/redirecting/
- Query Parameters: default setting.
- Target URL: enter the URL that the user will be redirected to. If it’s the same domain, leave off the domain name, for example: /new-page/about/
- Group: Redirections.
- For more advanced settings, check out their documentation: https://redirection.me/support/
