How To: Fix Nick Berlette’s excellent Redirect Plugin for WordPress 2.6 and higher

The static pages (like Store) are working again.  I’ve had to fix the redirect plugin by Nick Berlette.  If you want it to work with your modern WordPress blog (2.6 or higher) you just need to change a tiny bit.
Remove this:

require_once($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/wp-config.php');

Replace with:

$root = dirname(dirname(dirname(dirname(__FILE__))));

if (file_exists($root.'/wp-load.php')) {
    require_once($root.'/wp-load.php');
} else {
    require_once($root.'/wp-config.php');
}

It should work fine now 🙂
