This plugin doesn’t work and there’s no reply from support even after more than one month. I set it to redirect visitors from a specific country to a specific link but nothing happens and it doesn’t redirect.

Giving it 4 stars because it worked in my simple test — using France geo in Tor browser, it redirected. The parameters in my link don’t translate properly, however. I tried encoded and standard links. Tor browser forwards, but everything from ?=parameter& converts to #38;. I’m not posting that information as a tech request. The plugin hasn’t been updated in a year, so I wouldn’t expect support. I’m posting that information for those who may want to try the plugin, but also need to use link parameters.

Saludos. Este desconocido plugin es excelente, estoy desarrollando un sitio para una persona que recibe trafico internacional y nacional, por la naturaleza del contenido se tiene que dividir asi que este plugin hace ese redireccionamiento perfectamente sin más. Este plug deberia tener una opcion IF Then Else ejemplo: IF Mexico Then url://mexico else url://internacional tambien seria algo interesante la capacidad de que puedan seleccionarse multiples paises al mismo tiempo, aunque seria muy laborioso la segmentacion por continentes para poder seleccionar paises especificos. creo que la implementacion continental seria aun mejor. Es un excelente plugin sobre todos los que hay en wordpress.
