Release: Redirects

Recommended Posts

Would be nice if this was supported in the core as well in the settings tab. I setup my redirects in there now and use the 404 logger module as that seems to cater for my current needs when rebuilding a site

yeah, core redirects would make sense, something that I can imagine seems common enough and can link in with the tracking of page url changes and redirecting.

not sure I understand how you're doing it, can you explain?

Hey folks!

Just wanted to mention that ProcessRedirects 2.0.0 is now out. As far as I can tell it should fix most of the issues that have been reported here, as well as those reported via GitHub. This is a major update and the module now requires ProcessWire 3.0.112+ and PHP 7.1+, so please keep that in mind if and when updating 🙂

Here's a kind-of-a-changelog for this release from the PR that got merged earlier today:

Quote
  • Mechanism for keeping track of and updating database schema.
  • Various GUI updates, including more JavaScript based checks, the use of vex dialogs and ProcessWire panels (for redirect testing), and a brand new export view.
  • Support for wildcard redirects by adding special meaning to star symbol (/path-to-*/subpath/ etc.)
  • Proper CSRF checks.
  • Switch from MySQLi to PDO.
  • ProcessWire 3.x namespace (hence module version 2.x, this alone would be a breaking change.)

... and some overall updates and "modernizations".

In case anyone is wondering why update this module now even though we already have a very powerful alternative (Jumplinks), the thing is that this module still serves a purpose: it's super easy to use, and does what it needs to do — no more, no less. Powerful features can be a double-edged sword, as they also tend to increase complexity, at least to some extent. When it comes to "power users", Jumplinks is by far a superior tool, but for regular content editors who just need the occasional shortlink (or something similar), this module is often just the right fit.

Hope that makes sense. Anyway, I still have some relatively minor additions in mind that I'd like to add to the module (assuming that Antti thinks they are a good fit), but again, for the most part this module already does what it needs to. Power users will likely feel more at home with Jumplinks 🙂

If you find a bug or have a feature in mind that this module really needs to have, feel free to open an issue at the GitHub repository. Thanks!
