Redirection is the most popular redirect manager for WordPress. With it you can easily manage 301 redirections, keep track of 404 errors, and generally tidy up any loose ends your site may have. This can help reduce errors and improve your site ranking.

Redirection is designed to be used on sites with a few redirects to sites with thousands of redirects.

It has been a WordPress plugin for over 10 years and has been recommended countless times. And it’s free!

Full documentation can be found at

Redirection est compatible avec PHP depuis 5.4 t au-dessus (7.2 inclus).

Redirect manager

Create and manage redirects quickly and easily without needing Apache or Nginx knowledge. If your WordPress supports permalinks then you can use Redirection to redirect any URL.

Il existe une prise en charge intégrale pour les expressions régulières, vous pouvez donc créer des modèles de redirection pour correspondre à n’importe quel nombre d’URL. Vous pouvez faire correspondre les paramètres de requête et même les transmettre à l’URL cible.

The plugin can also be configured to monitor when post or page permalinks are changed and automatically create a redirect to the new URL.

Conditional redirects

In addition to straightforward URL matching you can redirect based on other conditions:

  • Login status – redirect only if the user is logged in or logged out
  • WordPress capability – redirect if the user is able to perform a certain capability
  • Browser – redirect if the user is using a certain browser
  • Referrer – redirect if the user visited the link from another page
  • Cookies – redirect if a particular cookie is set
  • HTTP headers – redirect based on a HTTP header
  • Custom filter – redirect based on your own WordPress filter
  • IP address – redirect if the client IP address matches
  • Server – redirect another domain if also hosted on this server
  • Page type – redirect if the current page is a 404

Full logging

A configurable logging option allows to view all redirects occurring on your site, including information about the visitor, the browser used, and the referrer. A ‘hit’ count is maintained for each redirect so you can see if a URL is being used.

Logs can be exported for external viewing, and can be searched and filtered for more detailed investigation.

Display geographic information about an IP address, as well as a full user agent information, to try and understand who the visitor is.

Vous pouvez désactiver ou réduire la collection IP pour être conforme aux prérequis légaux de votre région géographique.

Track 404 errors

Redirection will keep track of all 404 errors that occur on your site, allowing you to track down and fix problems.

Les erreurs peuvent être regroupées pour vous indiquer où porter votre attention, et peuvent être redirigées par lots.

Prise en charge du paramètre de requête

Vous pouvez faire correspondre exactement les paramètres de requête, les ignorer et même les transmettre à votre cible.

Apache & Nginx support

By default Redirection will manage all redirects using WordPress. However you can configure it so redirects are automatically saved to a .htaccess file and handled by Apache itself.

If you use Nginx then you can export redirects to an Nginx rewrite rules file.

Import & Export

The plugin has a fully-featured import and export system and you can:

  • Import and export to Apache .htaccess
  • Export to Nginx rewrite rules
  • Copy redirects between sites using JSON
  • Import and export to CSV for viewing in a spreadsheet
  • Use WP CLI to automate import and export

You can also import from the following plugins:

  • Simple 301 Redirects
  • SEO Redirection
  • Safe Redirect Manager
  • Rank Math
  • WordPress old slug redirects

Wait, it’s free?

Yes, it’s really free. There’s no premium version and no need to pay money to get access to features. This is a dedicated redirect management plugin.

L’extension est simple à installer :

  1. Téléchargez
  2. Décompressez
  3. Envoyez le répertoire redirection dans votre répertoire /wp-content/plugins
  4. Rendez-vous sur la page de gestion des extensions et activez la.
  5. Configurer les options dans la page Gestion/Redirection

You can find full details of installing a plugin on the plugin installation page.

Full documentation can be found on the Redirection page.


Pourquoi devrais-je utiliser cela au lieu du .htaccess ?

Facilité d’utilisation. Les redirections sont créées automatiquement quand l’URL de publication change, et c’est incroyablement plus simple d’ajouter manuellement des redirections que de modifier un .htaccess. Vous avez aussi la possibilité de garder une trace des erreurs 404.

Quelles sont les performances de cette extension ?

L’extension utilise le même système que WordPress pour gérer les permaliens et ne devrait donc pas ralentir de manière notable votre site.

I just had two redirects, but that was done FLAWLESS!! I wish had known about this wonder plugin earlier! All thumbs up for John!!
26 septembre 2019
allows me to change a whole batch of slugs without any worry about old ulr's. Works a treat. thanks
26 septembre 2019
Great plugin, very powerful and easy to use. In addition is also free, open source, updated regularly and well supported. Cannot ask more.
24 septembre 2019
This plugin makes it really easy for me (or my assistant) to create links that I can use in my YouTube videos. YouTube will only allow linking to my own website, so I simply create redirects for everything and point the videos to the redirect. Thank you so much, and please accept my donation, it is so totally worth it!

Bonjour, pour info, après avoir effectué la mise à jour avec la version 4.4, j'ai été oblige de revenir à la version 4.3.3. En effet, la 4.4 est buguée. Cordialement
