Redirection is a WordPress plugin that allows you to create 301 redirects and can log redirects and 404 errors:

  1. Access the Redirection Interface:
    • After activating the plugin, you’ll find a new “Redirection” option in your WordPress dashboard’s sidebar.
  2. Set Up a Redirect:
    • Click on the “Redirection” option in the sidebar to access the plugin’s interface.
    • You’ll be taken to the “Redirection” management page.
    • To add a new redirect, click the “Add New” button.
  3. Configure the Redirect:
    • Source URL: Enter the URL path that you want to redirect from. For example, if you want to redirect “/old-page” to “/new-page,” you would enter “old-page” in this field.
    • Match: Select how you want the source URL to be matched. You can choose “URL only” for an exact match or other options for more flexible matching.
    • Action: Choose the type of redirection you want to create, such as 301 (Permanent) or 302 (Temporary).
    • Target URL: Enter the full URL where you want the source URL to redirect. For example, if you want to redirect to “https://example.com/new-page,” enter the full URL here.
    • Group: You can organize your redirects into groups for better management. This is optional.
  4. Save the Redirect:
    • Once you’ve configured the redirect settings, click the “Add Redirect” button to save it.
  5. Test the Redirect:
    • Open a new browser tab and enter the source URL you specified in the “Source URL” field. The plugin should automatically redirect you to the target URL.
  6. View and Manage Redirects:
    • Back in the “Redirection” interface, you’ll see a list of all your created redirects.
    • You can edit, delete, or disable redirects from this list as needed.
  7. Advanced Options (Optional):
    • The “Redirection” plugin also offers advanced features, such as regular expression redirects, pass-through queries, and conditional redirects. You can explore these options based on your needs.
  8. Monitor and Maintain:
    • Regularly review your redirects to ensure they are functioning as expected. Update or delete redirects if URLs change or if the redirects are no longer needed.
