Just redesigned a site using wordpress, trying to redirect urls (3 posts)

    Hi,

    As said I did a redesign of an old site with a url structure that looked like this:

    http://www.mysite.com/page.php?id=1194
    http://www.mysite.com/page.php?id=1195
    etc..

    Now I want to redirect each page to:

    http://www.mysite.com/newstuff
    http://www.mysite.com/morewnewstuff
    etc...

    I've tried using the webhost's redirect service, the htaccess file and 2 different wordpress redirect plugins but can't get it to work.

    Would really appreciate some help. Thanks.

    Simply go to Settings > Permalinks in your Dashboard. Then select Post Name. Next, you can go to individual posts and pages and edit directly under the Title input. Just to be safe, I would back up your site first and read up on permalinks before changing them: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks

    I hope that works out for you!

    Thanks, but the old site didn't use wordpress. I have the Post Name permalink structure on the new site already. This isn't something that can be achieved within wordpress without using plugins and I've tried 2 different plugins.
