I have wordpress up and running, and I've got a nice little permalink structure that I have set up through the options. The htaccess file was edited correctly and the permalinks all work.
My problem is that I want to add some additional redirects so that old pages redirect to newer blog posts. I'm not looking to do a rewrite rule or anything, just a simple RedirectPermanent directive. Any time I add the redirect to the htaccess though, I wind up getting Error 500. I think there is some kind of conflict with the wordpress modifications to the htaccess file.
Does anyone have an example of an htaccess file where Redirects and the wordpress rewrite rules live in harmony?
WordPress is installed to the root of my html folder, which might be complicating things.
