There are three possible scenarios where this plugin does something. In all cases, the attachment page must exists, the plugin will not run for deleted attachments:

A) A visitor lands on an attachment page and the parent post is available (not in trash or deleted). A 301 redirect will be issued to redirect the visitor to the parent post.

B) A visitor lands on an attachment page and the parent post was already deleted from trash. A 302 redirect is issued to home page (this can be changed to 301 if you want, see FAQ for more details).

C) A visitor lands on an attachment page and the parent post is in trash, therefore not available for the visitor. It returns a 404 error code to prevent endless redirection loop in old WP releases and redirecting to trashed/not available posts.

There is no options page, simply activate it and will do the job.

If you’re happy with the plugin please don’t forget to give it a good rating, it will motivate me to keep sharing and improving this plugin (and others).
