Feature request: add redirect from post/page/custom post type #81
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.

When I change a permalink (product/post/page) from orginal
WordPress redirects only seem to handle simple changes from
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?
