How To Make A 301 Redirect In Wordpress ?

As like other blogging platforms Wordpress users also got to redirect their webpages so there is no official method given by Wordpress to redirect webpage you have to add a plugin to your Wp dashboard.Redirection is one of them this is used by one of my friends and he says it works fine. Redirection is a WordPress plugin to manage 301 redirections and keep track of 404 errors without requiring knowledge of Apache .htaccess files.
  • 404 error monitoring - captures a log of 404 errors and allows you to easily map these to 301 redirects
  • Custom 'pass-through' redirections allowing you to pass a URL through to another page, file, or website.
  • Full logs for all redirected URLs
  • All URLs can be redirected, not just ones that don't exist
  • Redirection methods - redirect based upon login status, redirect to random pages, redirect based upon the referrer!
