[resolved] .htaccess redirects from WP to wp.com (8 posts)

    Hi guys,
    I've successfully exported/imported my blog of three+ years into WordPress.com
    Can anybody help me write an .htaccess redirect as follows:

    anything that begins with this:
    http://www.meeciteewurkor.com/wp/*
    needs to go to this:
    http://meeciteewurkor.wordpress.com/*

    The permalinks are of the same structure.

    Example:
    This:
    http://meeciteewurkor.com/wp/2007/10/22/stick-a-fork-in-mee-sorta/
    should redirect to this:
    http://meeciteewurkor.wordpress.com/2007/10/22/stick-a-fork-in-mee-sorta/

    The successful .htaccess redirect writer receives much love and pats on the back. :)

  2. If you still have access to your old wp directory try putting this .htaccess in there:

    RewriteEngine ON
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://meeciteewurkor.wordpress.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    That should take care of it.

    Although some of us may be into love and pats on the back, I think that you need to be in the WordPress(.)com forum. This is the WordPress(.)org forum.

    Indeed, I figured since the redirects are on my original wp blog, I'd ask here. I love you, VeraBass, but I love jdembowskie more, because his redirect worked. :)

    Thanks.

    No rejection intended. :)
    I knew if I posted cheesy stuff about love and such that somebody would help me out. This forum has never failed mee.

    thanks again guys.

    The redirection in the .htaccess is great tip! I decided as well to keep a backup copy of my own blog that is not on wordpress.com to redirect to the one that is by using the plugin called "Moving Your Blog". Nice if you just want to redirect your blog without actually taking it completely offline (as in my case for backup).

    Something to keep in mind if you ever come across a situation like mine!
