MT to WP Permalink Redirect (3 posts)

    I'm moving from MT to WP and am having an issue with redirecting permalinks...
    In MT my archives were like:
    website.com/archives/the_category_name/2004/05/file_name.html
    In WP I need to redirect to:
    website.com/archives/the_category_name/2004/05/file-name/
    OR
    website.com/archives/2004/05/file-name/
    In WP I'm having two issues...
    1. There appears to be no category option for the permalinks.
    If this is this the case, is my only option to create a rewite rule for every single category I have?
    2. I've tried Adam's Fixing MT URLs for WP plugin
    which works great for similar formats, but when trying to strip out the ".html" by adding...
    $redir = str_replace('.html', '', $redir);
    I had no luck.
    If anyone has any ideas, let me know.
    Thanks,
    Brian

    well yes this info is still valid for 1.2 cause the inventor of it is using it on his site which runs on 1.2

    (though I'm not sure it's what you want of course)

    Just an update...
    Alex's Redirecting MT Entries did all of the above perfectly.
