Redirection is a powerful tool for site owners that provides a backend interface for creating site redirects.
|Match types||Exact, Begins With, Ends With, Regular Expression|
|Redirect types||301 (Permanent) or 302 (Temporary)|
|Hit counters||See how many people are hitting your redirects|
|Sortable||Trigger the redirect you want for any given URL|
|Test URL||Know exactly which redirects will trigger for any given URL|
|Simple Backend Interface||No more struggling with .htaccess files trying to figure out why your redirects aren't working|
Available Match Types
|Matches Exactly||A complete URL. Include the protocol and the query string.|
|Starts With||Any URL that begins with what you specify. Include the protocol.|
|Ends With||Any URL that ends with what you specify. Include the query string.|
|Regex||Regular expression match. Supports wildcards and variables. See below.|
Regular Expression URL Matching
Setting Match Type to Regex allows matching of multiple URLs in a single redirect. This can be useful for example when renaming your category URL from /category/ to /products/. A store often has tens or hundreds of categories so creating one redirect for each category URL isn't feasible. Regular Expressions allows a single redirect to cover all these URLs
Create a redirect as follows:
What is causing this redirect?
Some sites can have a lot of redirects and it can become difficult to figure out why a specific URL is redirecting. For this purpose I've added a Test URL button. Enter the URL that is redirecting in the backend and all matching Redirects will appear in a table below.

Nice plugin, but UI is a bit outdated. Works not very efficient on database with a lot of redirects, because al redirects are stored and queried in MySQL database.
Note: There is an alternative plugin available "Redirect" which has even more features and it's free. I recommend you to check that one out too.
