Converted a site to WordPress, but don't know how to redirect the URLs (3 posts)

    Hi WordPress gang,

    I have converted a HTML site of mine about 15 pages to WordPress yesterday, but although I'm happy with the change I dare not put it live; reason being the old URLs are not the same like the current ones with WordPress.

    Can someone guide me a little on how to redirect the old URLs to the new URLs in WordPress?

    I heard there was a plugin to do this, but I'm not sure if it will work, because the old site was not a WordPress site :(

    Are the old URLs consistent in any way? I mean, is there some sort of "rule" you could devise to convert from one to the other?

    If not, you may just need to do a large set of redirects, like this:

    Redirect /oldpath/oldfile.html http://example.com/newpath/newlink/

    Just make one of those for each URL, stick them in the main .htaccess.

    Thanks Otto,

    I'll try that out.
