    Hi,
    I just updated a buddy's 9yr old site into a WordPress site, all of the old site uses the .htm suffix.
    Should I do 301 on all the pages (there's only 6 pages in old site including the index.htm)
    Is there any need to do a redirect from index.htm to index.php??

    thanks
    T

    Should I do 301 on all the pages

    That's probably the easiest solution in this case, yes.

    Is there any need to do a redirect from index.htm to index.php?

    No. Not unless index.html was specifically referenced anywhere.

    Just add them to the WP root .htaccess file.
