Description MZMcBride 2011-01-24 05:49:07 UTC
The "CreateRedirect" extension was committed to SVN in r76578. It uses raw HTML and some other nastiness, which should probably be cleaned up. There may be XSS vulnerabilities in the code; using standard classes/functions dramatically reduces the likelihood of this (and it makes the code generally more readable and standardized).
Comment 1 Quim Gil 2013-04-21 01:02:21 UTC
It seems that the original author hasn't touched this extension in years, but other regular contributors have. 

Apparently only the DragonBall Encyclopedia uses it:

Is this an abandoned extension or not? Assuming Lowest priority for this bug report.
