Redirection plugin prevents internal redirection from working

Reported by: theMikeD Owned by: theMikeD
Priority: high Severity: critical
Plugin: redirection Keywords: postmeta, _wp_old_slug


Redirection is preventing the redirection built-in to wordpress from working.

When a post slug is changed, WP automatically adds a redirection for it in wp_postmeta as a _wp_old_slug field. From that point on, all references to the old slug are automatically redirected to the new one.

However, as soon as the redirection plugin is activated, all of the built-in automatic redirections stop working. I've tested this on my testing blog and my live one: plugin active: no redirection. Plugin inactive: redirection.

Obviously this is a big, big issue, as it means that all old links go dead...unless they are pounded in to redirection manually.
