404 Redirected
Redirect Expired Posts to first category (3 posts)

    I have a website and the events listed become outdated after they have been and gone.
    I have set it up so that posts automatically expire and are moved to Drafts.

    So now I have links which point to the site which are outdated. What I want is the following redirection

    xyz.com/1stcategory/2ndcategory/eventABC

    when it expires

    to go to
    xyz.com/1stcategory/2ndcategory/

    This not only makes sense for a user point of view but also as an SEO factor.

    Can This Plugin do the job for me??? Thanks

    yes, depending on how many of these that happen weekly.

    You just have to look at the 404 links that are broken, sort them by number of hits and then redirect them appropriately.

    it's not an automated thing.

    You might be able to add some code to modify it to that purpose, if need be.

    It's fairly simple to manage if you don't have over 20 of these going down a week.

    Hi yes,

    in the future this could happen over 50-100 times a day and therefore doing this manually would take some time. Do you have any suggestions, I am more interested in having it automated for the search engines rather than the user.

    Thanks
