Would love to have an option like this on my edit screens for post/pages/custom post types:

Is it maybe an idea to only allow this for custom post types. When I'm right WordPress already does 301 redirects automatically when you change post/page permalinks. Is that WordPress 100% error proof, because we don't have a overview of the 301 redirects which is pretty annoying.

Hi, well I've tried to finds some documentation about it since I have seen a place where it was explained, can't find it anymore, so I have looked at Github of WordPress myself.

My feature request was/is to add a box to posts/pages/custom post types, so when I change a permalink to a new permalink I can easily add this 301 redirect into Safe Redirect Manager using that box instead of going to the admin screen of your plugin.

But then I remembered: when I change a permalink of a post and page, WordPress always finds the new Permalinks, also when I use the old one > which means that wordpress is doing the redirect for us already. This is what I found in WP:

So hopefully you understand my last comments, because when this 301 redirect of WP is 100% error proof, it makes no sense to add this kind of box to posts/pages and do it manually again while WordPress is also doing it automatically.

Curious to your opinion about this.

Hi, was my explenation clear now about the auto-301-redirect that WP is already having in their code?

Yes, if you change a permalink, WordPress auto handles the redirect for you. I think if you change it multiple times it only remembers the last redirect.

Hi there, did some testing with pages, posts and WooCommerce products.

The 301 redirects build-in in WordPress are not 100% error proof!

When I change a permalink (product/post/page) from orginal /hi-there/ to /there-hi/ WordPress is NOT saving this redirect.

WordPress redirects only seem to handle simple changes from /hi-there/ to /hi-there1/ for example. And when I change /hi-there1/ to /hi-there2/, is not resulting in 2 redirect but in one from original /hi-there/ to /hi-there2/. So this feature in WP can no be trusted and the more important is a good plugin like yours to manage 301 redirects everytime I change a permalink.

This being researched and said: when I change a permalink from a post/page/product or any other CPT it would be way more easier if I can add a redirect into safe redirect manager when staying on the same page > see my original feature request :-).

Are you taking this in consideration and if yes, do you maybe have a timeline?
