Great for broken links, etc. I used it for when I set up my permalink structure wrong and I didn't want to break incoming links. I also use it to redirect some pages listed on top off site (challenge blog, my website, amazon store).
When I first started my blog, I had no clue what I was doing with my categories. They were so messed up! A couple of months ago I went back and redid the whole thing. This plugin was essential. Eliminates need to go into every post to change the category or the tag.
You would not believe how many people have left comments because of this plugin. I have it set so that after five visits to my blog it displays a personalized message. You can set it up however you want.
So excited. I just discovered this plug-in that lets you set the limits to how many posts you show on each page. I was always perturbed that if you clicked on archives/categories/tags that only the first five posts were shown, then user would have to click next to discover all 40 posts in a category. Who's going to do that 8 times?
I should have updated this one. After using this plug-in for a week, the query that it created kept crashing my server and I had to take it off. So I'm not using it anymore. For the week, I had it, I really liked it (except for the crashing part). There is another similar one that I was going to hunt down and try instead. I'll let you know when I do. But in the meantime, I did build my archives using the plug-in below.
I just built my archives using this List Category Posts plug-in. You can use it on posts or pages and it has a sidebar widget I think. So far I've found it really easy to use and haven't had any problems!
I haven't had a single instance of spam since I installed this a few months ago -- more than 22,000 bits of spam blocked so far with no false positives! I find it works much, much better than askimet (though I use both in conjunction with each other).
I was getting 20+ spam per day, now I get 1 or less.
Thank you for posting these two plugins. I've had as many as 10-20 false positives a month and 20 spam go through a month with Askimet. Enough that I have to wade through my spam before I can delete them. Even long time commenters will get dumped into spam. I have no idea why. I knew there were other options out there but I hadn't taken the time find them.
