Redirect old pages to Wordpress

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of re-creating a fairly large HTML webpage into a Wordpress Thesis theme... I suddenly realized that lots of pages are linking to individual pages on the HTML site. How do I redirect each HTML page to the new Wordpress pages??

 

Thanks,

Kim

In your htaccess file, *before* the Wordpress rewrite code if you're using permalinks:

 

RewriteRule ^oldink.html /newlink [L,R=301]

 

Always make a backup copy of your .htaccess file before editing it, and promptly test changes. The tiniest of typos can disable your site. If that happens, just delete the .htaccess file from the server and start over.

And Leanne is not kidding! I can vouch for that for sure. I upgraded some blogs last week and although I'd done it with many others before, I had 5 blogs go down on me last week. Not a pretty site! :angry: Took me quite sometime to fix so backing up things is very important.
