I’m getting an error about the default permalink structure?

301 Redirects requires that you use anything but the default permalink structure.

My redirects aren’t working

This could be caused by many things, but please ensure that you are supplying valid URLs. Most common are extra spaces, extra slashes, spelling mistakes and invalid characters. If you’re sure they’re right, chances are your browser has cached the 301 redirect (in an attempt to make the redirection faster for you), but sometimes it doesn’t refresh as fast as we would like. Clear your browser cache, or wait a few minutes to fix this problem.
My redirects aren’t working – the old .html page still shows
For this plugin to work, the page must be within the WordPress environment. If you are redirecting older .html or .php files, you must first delete them. The plugin can’t redirect if the file still exists, sorry! You should look into .htaccess redirects if you want to keep these files on your server.

My redirects aren’t getting the 301 status code

Your Request or Redirect URLS may be incorrect; please ensure that you are supplying valid URLs. Check slashes. Try Viewing the page by clicking the Request URL – does it load correctly?

How do I delete a redirect?

Click the small X beside the redirect you wish to remove.

How do I add wildcards. or folder redirects?

Unfortunately this is not supported. You should look into .htaccess redirects for these advanced features.

What about query strings?

301 Redirects is easy to install and configure. Perfect!
