Challenging URL problem! (1 post)

    Hello out there!

    I want all my URLs to display http://www.mydomain.com/post-name/

    I have just moved the content of an entire custom made site to WordPress.

    1. Problem:
    When redirecting URLs from my old site to my new WordPress based site it works as long as I don't redirect the category page containing all those sub pages.

    Example: old URL /topicone.php?sid=00174 redirected to http://www.mydomain.com/topicone/ works fine.

    However, redirecting the old page /topicone.php to http://www.mydomain.com/topicone/ makes all sub pages (/topicone/post-name1 etc.) redirect to http://www.domain.com/topicone/.

    2. Also, I want my URLs to look like this: http://www.domain.com/post-name/ but at the moment that page redirects to http://www.domain.com/topicone/post-name/

    I'm using the Quick Page/Post Redirect Plugin at the moment. There is at least 500 old URLs to redirect to the new WordPress site. The domain name remains the same.

    Kind of a challenging problem, or maybe there is a simple solution? Please help if you can!

    Thank you!
