Shortcode Redirect


Shortcode Redirect allows site owners to automatically redirect a user after a chosen amount of seconds when viewing a page or post on the site. The plugin instructions are very simple. Add a shortcode to the post/page that looks like the following [redirect url='' sec='3'] the url= part is where you define the URL to redirect the user to and the sec= part is where you define how many seconds to wait before redirecting.

Shortcode redirect should work with older versions of WordPress as well but was not tested with anything older than 2.7


  1. Upload ‘’ to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.

  2. Activa el plugin desde el menú ‘Plugins’ de WordPress.

  3. Add the shortcode on the pages/posts that you want to redirect. Shortcodes should look like [redirect url='' sec='5'] where the url= part is the URL to redirect to, and sec= is the seconds to wait before redirecting the page.

  4. ¡Realizado!

Preguntas frecuentes

  • How do I get rid of the «Please wait while you are being re-directed…» line? – Later I will have an option for this, but for now, just edit the scr.php file and delete line 36 which contains that text then save the file.

You can either use this plugin or use a few lines of html code with the advantage, that you can easily edit the text that is show before redirecting. So in the end its easier to use the original html code. Also what i dont like is, that it is not possible to go back once you have been redirected. But thats the same problem you are facing with the html code.

OK so I found a fix. To the developer of this plugin: you need to update your shortcode from the description of this plugin with standard ' apostrophes. The one's provided in the shortcode do not work. Just make some changes in the description of this plugin and I'll change this rating to a 5. Original message: Trying to set this up on a fresh installation of wordpress and it's a shame it doesn't work anymore despite it being fantastic on my other website

Just simply works. Tested on Safari, Chrome and Firefox. Sometimes I make the PHP adjustment and sometimes I don't. I'm using it on all sites with 4.8 (currently). Good, simple and reliable. My thanks to the Author.
