A few weeks ago, we published about how to redirect users after they leave a comment on your site and one of our readers suggested a plugin called Comment Redirect. We contacted the plugin’s developer and he is very kind to give us a copy of the plugin for testing the plugin.
Unlike Comment Redirect plugin by Yoast, this Comment Redirect plugin offers few more additional features. Here’s a short video about the plugin:
1. Content Redirecting – After leaving a comment on one of your posts, you can choose to redirect the user to another page. Additionally, there are few more options – show a popup and choose to redirect the user only once.
2. Highly customizeable – In few clicks, you can customize the color and text of the popup. The popup also has a slick and modern design. You gotta love it.
3. Integration with popular email marketing services – The plugin integrates seamlessly with few popular email marketing services such as MailChimp, Aweber, and Constant Contact. If you do not need the newsletter form, that can simply be disabled from the settings page.
4. Custom links and social media buttons – The popup is not limited to the newsletter form and text. You could also insert any custom link to the popup and also buttons linked to your social media profiles. The plugin currently supports 4 popular services – Facebook, Google, Twitter and LinkedIn.
4. Live preview – This is our favorite feature. Make any changes to the popup and instantly see the result. No more refreshing the page.
Although the plugin works great, the UI of the plugin’s settings page could be improved. The plugin settings page does not mesh well with WordPress core UI. In this article by Pippin Williamson in Torquemag.io, he clearly explained why it’s not a good idea to use your own UI in the plugin’s settings page.
