We have designed a new site to replace an existing one. The previous site used URLs containing the product ID to link to specific products. For example, /shop/GUFC56912.
I am creating URL Rewrite rules so that the old URLs will still resolve, but the new site (WordPress 3.5.2 w/WooCommerce) uses slugs based on the product title, not the product ID. It will require many more rules in .htaccess if I have to translate product IDs into product titles.
What I need to know is if there is a way to display a WooCommerce product by its sku so that I can do a permanent redirect to the new product page. If I can load a product page on the new site by its product ID I will only have to create a single rule in .htaccess.
Is it possible to link to a WooCommerce product by its sku? Any examples? :P
