Home Forums Other Folder to domain rewrite + 301’s Re: Folder to domain rewrite + 301’s


Ooh I misinterpreted part of your question.

The instructions will allow you to tidy the WordPress URL but you’ll have to find some good tutorials to redirect the old (non-wordpress) URLs. .htaccess might be complicated, but you could place a few php files in the place of the old URLs with a redirect header to the correct post? i.e. ‘/mad-contact-url-that-sux.php’ with a redirect to ‘/contact/’ – may help.

Again, if the pages are worth it and the mark-up is good people (and therefore Google) will find them!
