Have you ever wondered how all the gurus websites you are visiting are having nice clean Urls to all their accounts and services? Here is a very useful 100% free WordPress Plugin to achieve just that.

I think that one of the first website where I encountered this type of Urls was John Chow blog. I’m speaking about Urls like the ones I am using to link to my Twitter account: http://dukeo.com/twitter , my Facebook account http://dukeo.com/facebook and all the other stuff I’m linking from my blog.

At first, I heard about a WordPress Plugin called “Link Ninja” or something like that, but you bet it, it was costing some money… After some research, I found this awesome plugin named “Redirection” which does just that.

Here is a list of features for this plugin:

  • Automatically add a 301 redirection when a post’s URL changes
  • Manually add 301, 302, and 307 redirections for a WordPress post, or for any other file
  • Full regular expression support
  • Apache .htaccess is not required – works entirely inside WordPress
  • Strip or add www to all your WordPress pages
  • Redirect index.php, index.html, and index.htm access
  • Redirection statistics telling you how many times a redirection has occurred, when it last happened, who tried to do it, and where they found your URL
  • Fully localized
  • 404 error monitoring – captures a log of 404 errors and allows you to easily map these to 301 redirects
  • Custom ‘pass-through’ redirections allowing you to pass a URL through to another page, file, or website
  • Full logs for all redirected URLs
  • All URLs can be redirected, not just ones that don’t exist
  • Redirection methods – redirect based upon login status, redirect to random pages, redirect based upon the referrer!

The installation is really straightforward:

  1. Download redirection.zip
  2. Unzip
  3. Upload redirection directory to your /wp-content/plugins directory
  4. Go to the plugin management page and enable the plugin
  5. Configure the options from the Tools/Redirection page

On the options page, you can simply add new redirections as follow:

Now, you’ll have nice clean Urls for all the services you are linking to!

    Hi, I need help with this plugin :(
    I want to redirect my previous website to my new website but it didn’t work.

    Pls advise.

    1. Corrine, this plugin is not made to redirect a whole blog to a new one.

      If you are using wordpress, you might want to take a look at this tutorial to see how to migrate a blog to a new domain.
