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

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.

There is full support for regular expressions so you can create redirect patterns to match any number of URLs.

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
  • Browser – redirect if the user is using a certain browser
  • Referrer – redirect if the user visited the link from another page

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.

Track 404 errors

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

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
  • 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.

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 could not be happier with this plugin

I could not be happier with this plugin. It does exactly what it says on the tin. It does it fast and flawlessly. It was easy and hassle-free to set up. I love it which I do not say lightly. I am very fussy and demanding of my technology; nothing else WordPress related has impressed me this much.

I had screwed up a bunch of permalinks for live news items getting a lot of traffic but with this plugin, everything was fixed and not a single person noticed or complained.

There is going to be another URL problem coming up in a few months that I expected to spend days writing .htaccess directives to fix but with this plugin, I think I no longer have to worry.

Trailing slash!

I was thinking it doesn’t work but then i discovered you just need to add a trailing slash to the URL you’re redirecting from!

Otherwise the plugin is quite flexible, and the regex functionality is very nice.

My most used plugin

Having renamed/deleted out a lot of categories after moving from to this plugin has proved priceless. Simple redirection set-up, easy to see which redirects then get the most traffic and also nice to have a 404 list to then add those to my redirects too

Great Plugins 🙂

This plugin does exactly what is meant to do. It does a great job managing your 301 redirections and does an exceptional job tracking your 404 errors. It saves you a lot of time by managing this for you.

The developer has also made sure this plugin is kept up to date with the current WordPress version. Well done 😉

Keep up the great work.

Thank you
