WPCOM Legacy Redirector
WordPress plugin for handling legacy redirects in a scalable manner.
This is a no-frills plugin (no UI, for example). Data entry needs to be bulk-loaded via the wp-cli commands provided or custom scripts.
Redirects are stored as a custom post type and use the following fields:
post_namefor the md5 hash of the "from" path or URL.
- we use this column, since it's indexed and queries are super fast.
- we also use an md5 just to simplify the storage.
post_titleto store the non-md5 version of the "from" path.
- one of either:
post_parentif we're redirect to a post; or
post_excerptif we're redirecting to an alternate URL.
