Simple but powerful

By oleonard on January 26, 2023

This plugin just works, and is useful in so many different situations from finding missing page errors to tracking QR code usage. Indispensable.

While I try to use as few plugins as possible, Redirection is an absolute life saver. It would take a ton of work to do what you can do in moments with this plugin, and now that I'm rebuilding certain sites for FSE this plugin is a must. Thank you John Godley for building and maintaining Redirection!

Worked when top rated plugins failed

By kshitijahuja on January 25, 2023

For some reason, the top two plugins were broken on my Wordpress multisite installation and this one worked like a charm on first attempt.

Also, it is less cluttered for those who want simple redirections.

Part of every new site I make

By Tessa (they/them), AuRise Creative (tessawatkinsllc) on November 29, 2022

As a professional WordPress web developer, this plugin is on my list of must-have's when I create a new website. I also use it to create vanity URLs for marketing campaigns so I can use a short and simple URL on a printed flyer that redirects to a page with custom UTM parameters to easily track acquisition and that campaign's performance. I've been using this plugin for a few years now and thought I'd finally write a review for it :)
