Simple Website Redirect

Descripcion

The Simple Website Redirect plugin allows to you redirect an entire website (except the WordPress admin) to another website.

The URL path and query string is preserved when redirecting to the new site. Ideally, the new site would handle any one-off redirects where a URL for an old page should point to a new page. The Redirection plugin is great for this purpose.

Usage Instructions

Using this plugin is simple:

  1. Install the plugin
  2. Activate the plugin
  3. Go to ‘Settings’ in the WordPress admin menu and then click on ‘Website Redirect’.
  4. Enter the URL you want to redirect the site to, set the desired redirection type, set the status to ‘Enabled’ and save your changes!

Note: Redirection type can either be ‘Temporary’ or ‘Permanent’. It is recommended that you start with ‘Temporary’ while testing and then convert to ‘Permanent’ after testing for maximum SEO benefit. Please be aware that browsers cache permanent redirects.

Screenshots

  • Just enter the URL you want to redirect the site to, set the desired redirection type, set the status to 'Enabled' and save!
  • Advanced settings let you configure exclusions to redirects on the front end. Very useful if you still need to use a front-end page builder while redirecting everything else.

This plugin does exactly what it is supposed to. I use it to redirect traffic from an old site on an old domain to the new site on the current domain. Works like a charm!

Great plugin! One question, is there any option to add the home page to the Exclude Paths? Thanks for the answer!

This plugin does one thing and one thing well. It will redirect all traffic from any WP site where it is installed and enabled to another WP site. This isn't fancy and won't work transparently if your URL structure changes, but if your URL structure isn't changing (or if it is, but on the receiving site you have more flexibility, perhaps via a .htaccess file), this plugin works very well.
