I'm migrating a 6-year-old site into WordPress. There isn't a ton of content, but there are some articles whose URLs would be missed if they just disappeared. I could keep placeholder files at those locations to do the redirecting, but I'm wondering if there's a more graceful way to do this.
For example, I have a WP entry at foo.com/wordpress/title/, which corresponds to content formerly at foo.com/articles/title/ ("articles" isn't constant, there are multiple legacy directories).
What's the best way to make the old URL point to the new one (invisibly preferably)?
