I'm moving one of my sites into wordpress, and would like to retain their URI's.
For example, I have a page mysite.com/thispage/thispage.shtml.
That page right now is not in WordPress, and I'd like to change that.
So I've got the page saved as a page in wordpress, which displays fine and all that - but I can't get it to keep the URI.
I've tried some basic mod_rewrite rules and haven't gotten that to work, and even tried changing the 'slug' to mypage.shtml (but after saving, the '.' is removed so it looks like mypageshtml).
Any ideas on what to do here? Changing the file name is not an option..I know I could change the name and do a 301 redirect but for various reasons that's just no an option on this site.
If anyone can point me in the right direction of how to maintain that URI, that'd be great!
