Redirect a page to an URL


With this Plugin you can redirect a page in your WordPress installation to any other URL, to a page in your WordPress installation, to the first child page or to https.

!!! WARNING !!!

Some users reported that during the update to 2.0 all redirects where deleted before, I removed the plugin uninstall hook for now and investigate this bug. I've updated the SVN without a version bump.

Please do a backup of your db before you update the plugin!


  • Put the plugin file in your plugin directory and activate it in your WP backend.
  • Go to edit a page
  • Scroll down to 'Redirector' meta box
  • Select a WordPress page of you installation or enter a valid URL or select the 'first child page'
