Manage all Error Pages with Redirection WordPress Plugin

When someone comes to your website, and asks for a webpage that doesn’t exist, the webserver serves up a “404 ERROR, PAGE NOT FOUND”. Webpages get “lost” for various reasons, some of which you, the WordPress operator, have no control over:

  1. You may have deleted a page that is still a popular search result.
  2. You may have changed the page’s permalink without redirecting.
  3. Someone may have made a type in the link. Could have been you, could have been someone else. If it’s a link in a popular webpage, you’re going to get a lot of 404 errors.
  4. Maybe you might have been attacked by hackers.

Once you have the Redirection plugin installed, read the instructions on the plugin home page. Then read and understand all 12 pages of comments and every thread on the discussion… then you will know far more about handling bad webpages.

Manage all Error Pages with Redirection WordPress Plugin

It also has the following features:Features include:

  • Supports both WordPress-based and Apache-based redirections.
  • 404 error monitoring – captures a log of 404 errors and allows you to easily map these to 301 redirects.
  • RSS feed for 404 errors.
  • Custom ‘pass-through’ redirections allowing you to pass a URL through to another page, file, or website.
  • Full logs for all redirected URLs.
  • Create redirections based upon a URL, browser, referring site, or login status.
  • Automatically add a 301 redirection when a post’s URL changes.
  • Full regular expression support.
  • Fully localized.
  • Export all redirections to CSV, XML, or Apache .htaccess files.
  • Import Apache .htacces files.

Some of the new features of the Redirection plugin include supporting 404 error monitoring for Apache as well as WordPress based redirections. This means users can easily map the captured log of 404 errors and map them to 301.

The redirected URLs then add a 301 redirection based upon a browser, URL, login status or referring site.

This plug-in contains macros for redirecting pages and provides two basic ways to redirect. The only difference is really a matter of perspective.

  • {redirect} is generally used when a page is often linked directly outside this Confluence install but it has changed names for some reason.
  • {alias} is generally used when a page may be known by more than one name.
