Using the redirect editor is extremely simple you simply type the old link and then write the new link as shown below.

After installing, go to Settings > Redirect Editor to configure.


Removed unique link feature and image alt text seo for the time being. These features did not work in previous versions. The attempt to automatically make images blind friendly has been removed, for the time being. We are working on coming up with the best solutions. In no way is trying to make images blind friendly and helpful for SEO legal compliance with the ADA, if that ever occurs that would be a random unintentional side effect that would be on a site by site basis, based on your dataset, which is completely outside of our control.


patches for bugs possibly going all the way back to 1.x, redirect editor feature working better than ever. We are no longer under settings we have our own icon in wp backend menu bar called seo plugin


ASAP patch, fixes previous plugin broken code.


Added in automated image optimization, to try and put the title of your post or the title of your caption to be visible to the blind and deaf community, who use screen readers while also attempting to optimize your SEO.

Hides license.txt, hides install.php readme.html, hides wp-config.php, hides wp-content/uploads/. All important areas of WordPress that need to be hidden.


Very important update! We accidentally removed the form functionality in version 1.6.1 by accident. We deeply apologize. 1.6.2 has patched that.

This plugin was broken in August, and no one has noticed that it no longer actually redirects? I’ve now gone through every code change since then, and it is all junk changes, and the release notes don’t always match the changes they made in the code. I won’t be using this plugin any more and will be re-releasing it under a new name, and remove all of the planetzuda additions that direct to their mailing list sign up and purchase options, etc. I am very suspect that they are waiting to take over installations by the next highest paying spammer or something. The alternative is that they are just really bad developers, but in either case, you don’t want this plugin.

Thank goodness I finally found this plugin. I often have to add large amounts of redirects at once. Most plugins only allow them to be added one by one. I tried another plugin that has a bulk uploader but it kept failing at about 150 redirects. Redirect Editor is so easy to use and I can quickly add as many redirects as needed at one time. 5 stars for this plugin for ease of use and speed.
