    I have changed two urls and dont wanna loose my backlink juice from the old URL's. What do I do? Do I use a 301 or a 401 redirect?
    Or any other suggestions would be great. Thank you.

    Thank you Jay. I read your link. Im not trying to redirect an entire site just a couple of pages in one of my wordpress sites. Is it still the same process? Thank you so much.

    Read the second option here It explains what to do and gives you an example. Since you are not changing domains, I dont think you need to include the domain part.

    Do you know how to access your .htaccess file? If not, use the plugin option that Sunup12 suggested. To find those, just search the plugin repository.

    Try hosting your image on a site like ImageShack and posting the link here. Are you still having problems with redirects?

    I installed a WordPress plug in that's working.
    Is it ok to redirect multiple pages?
