Legacy URL Forwarding

Redirect/forward urls to a particular page or post within WordPress (eg a legacy URL)

The plugin redirects legacy URLs a previous version of a websites that has since been converted into a WordPress site. It can also be used for other redirecting, eg having a short URL that directs to a page as part of a campaign.

For example:

http://www.example.com/old-page.html

Can be directed to:

http://www.example.com/2011/04/25/new-page.html

Simply by adding 'old-page.html' as a custom field when editing new-page within WordPress.

Every time a 404 page is called, the Legacy URL plugin checks the database and if it find a legacy-url value that exactly matches the URL it will redirect to the new page.

Please note that this plugin has no settings/options pages within the WordPress admin module.
