- Description: Redirect Pages or Posts to another location quickly. Adds a redirect box to the page or post edit page where you can specify the redirect Location and type. Location can be to another WordPress page/post or an external URL. UPDATE: Page or post NO LONGER needs to be published for this to work correctly - however you do need to publish it and then save it as a draft so WordPress creates the proper meta for it.

Good question! THe number corresponds with the header code that is returned to the browser when the page is first accessed. A good page, meaning something was found, returns a 200 status code and that tells the browser to go ahead and keep loading the content for the page.

Easiest way to decide is this: If you want the page to permanetnly change to a new spot, use 301. If you are editing the page or post and only want it to be down for a few hours, minutes, days or weeks and plan on putting it back with the same link as before, then us 302. If you want to hide the reponse code from the spiders, use the `no code` option, and if you are having trouble with the redirects, use a `meta` redirect. The meta redirect actuall starts to load the page as a 200 good status, then redirects using a meta redirect tag.

46
+ Not any more! With 1.8, a new feature was added that allows you to create a redirect for any URL on your site. This is VERY helpful when you move an old site to WordPress and have old links that need to go some place new. For example,
47
+ If you had a link on a site that went to http://yoursite.com/aboutme.html you can now redirect that to http://yoursite.com/about/ without needing to edit the htaccess file. You simply add the old URL (/aboutme.html) and tell it you want to go to the new one (/about/). Simple as that.
48
+
49
+ The new fuctionality is located in the Admin under Settings/Quick Redirects. The olde URL goes in the Request field and the to new URL goes in the Destination field. Simple and Quick!

+
51
+ = I have Business Cards/Postcards/Ads that say my website is http://something.com/my-name/ or http://something.com/my-product/, can I set that up with this? =
52
+ YES! Just set up a redirect (see above) and set the Request field to /my-name/ or /my-product/ and the Destination field to the place you want it to go. The destination doesn't even need to be on the same site - it can go anywhere you want it to go!

Yes, you can, but you do not always need to. If you are redirecting to an external URL, then yes. If you are just redirecting to another page or post on your site, then no, it is not needed. When in doubt, use the entire URL.
