Import and Export Redirects

If you have created multiple redirect options, recreating them would take a lot of time. That's why you can quickly export all of your redirects so you can import them back where & when needed.

How to Export Redirects?

  1. Go to Settings -> 301 Redirects
  2. Open the Settings tab and choose "Tools"
  3. Click on the "Download Export File" button

By clicking on the button, you will download a CSV file that contains all of your redirects. This file can be used as a backup copy so you can restore it if needed, or you can import the redirects to another site (for example, if you're working on a local or staging site and want to export redirects to the production website).

How to Import Redirects?

If you're creating a CSV file on your own, or have a CSV file that wasn't exported by the WP 301 Redirects plugin, you will have to make sure you supply all the needed columnsStatus (301,302, inactive), Request URL, Redirect To (ID or URL).

To make sure you're working correctly, you can download the example file by clicking on the provided link below the "Upload" button.
