How To Change Category Names (2 posts)

    My categories on my WordPress blog do not have SEO friendly names and I'd like to change them as well as setup a 301 redirect.

    I've googled this and have found lots of information on setting up a 301 for a webpage, but nothing for a WordPress blog. I could really use some help in setting this up correctly. I'd prefer not to do this with a WordPress plugin but rather with htaccess.

    To give you an example, I would like to change from my current category

    http://www.domain.com/category/hotels-in-the-us/

    to

    http://www.domain.com/category/us-hotels/

    Thank you

    I would log in to wordpress. Click on "posts", click on "categories". On the right hand-side is your categories. Hover over the category you want to delete. Once you hover over it, it will allow you to edit or delete the category. You may have to move your article to another category before you do this.
