New hack ServerSideRedirectPlugin, created by martin_s

Server Side Redirect from a Wiki Page


This plug-in allow to place a redirect macro at the start of any wiki page which will cause an server side redirect when the wiki page is viewed.

This plug-in is compatible with the client side redirect macro TracRedirect.

A protection for 1st (A-A) and 2nd (A-B-A) order redirect loops is implemented, but higher order loops (A-B-C-A, etc.) must be handled by the browser or the user. Firefox 3 handles redirect loops well.
