Redirect Editor plugin for WordPress

WordPress logoI 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.

/2012/09/old-post/ http://www.example.com/2012/09/new-post/

Blank lines and lines that start with # (hash) are ignored and can be used for spacing and comments.

  3. Activate the plugin
  4. 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.
