[resolved] Permalinks/Broken Links (2 posts)

    Hello I have a problem/question about permalinks.

    I've made some changes to the way my permalinks work on my blog but this has resulted in a few broken links and Google returning old urls in its searches:

    Previously my permalink set up was:
    http://www.invadingholland.com//%postname%

    But now it is:
    http://www.invadingholland.com/%category%/%postname%

    Is there anything I can do to make it so the old set up also works as well as the new set up.

    For example; so that people going to a...
    http://www.invadingholland.com//%postname%

    ...get re-directed to...
    http://www.invadingholland.com/%category%/%postname%

    ...instead of my 404 page.

    As an example here is one of my posts with the old set up:
    http://www.invadingholland.com/bicycle-kung-fu-fury

    And the new:
    http://www.invadingholland.com/cycling-in-holland/bicycle-kung-fu-fury

    I've tried using a redirect plug-in but that seems to want me to put in exact urls. I need something that lets me set a more general rule using:

    %category% and %postname%
