WP plugin tip: Rewrite

I was just about to write my own WP plugin that would enable me to allow a specific URL to display the content of another URL based on regular expressions. But taking a quick look in the WordPress plugin directory made me find the “Rewrite” plugin by takien that did exactly this, and more.

It basically allows you to dynamically define a list of rules and have them be applied in order. Additional treats such as backup/restoring your ruleset just adds sugar to the top. I tested it in WordPress 3.8 and 3.5.1 and it appears to be working fine.

This plugin does NOT alter the .htaccess file and is an important fact for any multi-server WordPress installation.
