Performs a safe (local) redirect, using wp_redirect().Checks whether the $location is using an allowed host, if it has an absolute path. A plugin can therefore set or remove allowed host(s) to or from the list. If the host is not allowed, then the redirect defaults to wp-admin on the siteurl instead. This prevents malicious redirects which redirect to another host, but only used in a few places. Note: wp_safe_redirect() does not exit automatically, and should almost always be followed by a call to `exit;`: wp_safe_redirect( $url ); exit; Exiting can also be selectively manipulated by using wp_safe_redirect() as a conditional in conjunction with the {@see 'wp_redirect'} and {@see 'wp_redirect_status'} filters: if ( wp_safe_redirect( $url ) ) { exit; }
