I was looking for a WordPress plugin to manage a list of post redirects, but what I found was a little over-engineered for my tastes. I just wanted a simple web-interface to something resembling an .htaccess file. So I built it. It’s called Redirect Editor, and it provides a single textbox to manage a list of redirects, one per line, consisting of a relative URL path to match and an absolute URL destination to redirect to, separated by a space, e.g.
Blank lines and lines that start with # (hash) are ignored and can be used for spacing and comments.
- Download Redirect Editor v1.0 from the WordPress.org Plugin Directory (or from me here)
- Unzip the file and upload the folder
- Activate the plugin
- Go to Settings > Redirect Editor to configure
Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome. If you’re interested in contributing to the code behind Redirect Editor, it’s hosted on GitHub.
