    Hi -- this is a great plugin that I've used successfully across quite a few sites. Thanks for developing it!

    I'm working on migrating content over from a pretty old site that is using dynamic URL strings, and am having issues getting the 301 to work.

    I'd like to redirect the following:

    http://www.domain.com/content/article3.php?id=1
    TO
    http://www.domain.com/wordpress-post-name/

    I've tried the following as the request to no avail:
    /content/article3.php?id=1
    /content/article3.php?id=$1
    article3.php?id=1

    Any thoughts would be very much appreciated. Thanks so much.

    Does the file at /content/article3.php still exist? If so, WordPress and therefor the 301 redirect plugin will not process the request.

    Hi scottnelle, thanks for your reply. No, the domain is now pointing to a new server, and none of the old files exist on the new server.
