Redirection is the most popular redirect manager for WordPress. With it you can easily manage 301 redirections, keep track of 404 errors, and generally tidy up any loose ends your site may have. This can help reduce errors and improve your site ranking.
Redirection is designed to be used on sites with a few redirects to sites with thousands of redirects.
It has been a WordPress plugin for over 10 years and has been recommended countless times. And it’s free!

Redirection is compatible with PHP from 5.4 and upwards (including 7.2).
Create and manage redirects quickly and easily without needing Apache or Nginx knowledge. If your WordPress supports permalinks then you can use Redirection to redirect any URL.
There is full support for regular expressions so you can create redirect patterns to match any number of URLs. You can match query parameters and even pass them through to the target URL.
The plugin can also be configured to monitor when post or page permalinks are changed and automatically create a redirect to the new URL.
In addition to straightforward URL matching you can redirect based on other conditions:
Login status – redirect only if the user is logged in or logged out
WordPress capability – redirect if the user is able to perform a certain capability
Browser – redirect if the user is using a certain browser
Referrer – redirect if the user visited the link from another page
Cookies – redirect if a particular cookie is set
HTTP headers – redirect based on a HTTP header
Custom filter – redirect based on your own WordPress filter
IP address – redirect if the client IP address matches
Server – redirect another domain if also hosted on this server
Page type – redirect if the current page is a 404
A configurable logging option allows to view all redirects occurring on your site, including information about the visitor, the browser used, and the referrer. A ‘hit’ count is maintained for each redirect so you can see if a URL is being used.
Logs can be exported for external viewing, and can be searched and filtered for more detailed investigation.
Display geographic information about an IP address, as well as a full user agent information, to try and understand who the visitor is.
You are able to disable or reduce IP collection to meet the legal requirements of your geographic region.
Track 404 errors
Redirection will keep track of all 404 errors that occur on your site, allowing you to track down and fix problems.
Errors can be grouped to show where you should focus your attention, and can be redirected in bulk.
Query parameter handling
You can match query parameters exactly, ignore them, and even pass them through to your target.
Apache & Nginx support
This plugin does exactly what it says it will do. It is easy to setup in about three clicks, and adding page redirections is as easy as reading A B C. Thank you.
