Here’s a great article on how to create different types of redirections with the Redirection plugin from WordPress.

That’ll forward the home URL and every following subdirectory accordingly.

To add a redirect regardless of whether the user adds a trailing slash or not, you add this:

[/]? so it’d look something like this: /relative-url[/]?
