Hello - Searched around for this and found some older plugins (4.6) but nothing current. I'd like to have:
- A list of 404's that are occuring, with manual redirection I provide
- Enter direct folder or other URLs to redirect
For example, I would like /forums/ which was my old URL to redirect to the homepage.
Also, I'd like popular deep links to have a means of redirecting to the correct content.
My overall issue is my old URL structure was a "vBulletin Addon" for SEO optimization, and any conversion was unlikely to know that URL conversion. Roughly 20% of my incoming traffic right now is 404.
One thing I hoped might help was in advanced configuration, which looked like what I needed but in testing did not work as I had hoped:
OOoooh, nevermind, that does work -- I was just testing a topic that no longer existed. Happy dance.
I’m not aware of anything that exists today for this. I would personally do it with .htaccess instead of JS just to keep it cleaner and not mess with themes.
I'm using these apps:
