[resolved] Redirects and Permalinks (3 posts)

    I am trying to change my permalinks so in the permalinks settings in my blog I have entered this into my custom structure.
    /http:/yourworldwired.com/%postname%.htm
    I want the post name after my website. Obviously my website is http://www.yourworldwired.com
    Now I did this after about 20 posts so I need to redirect my old posts which had the default permalinks to the new address. An example of an old one is this.
    http://yourworldwired.com/wordpress/?p=14
    I want it to be changed to this...
    http://yourworldwired.com/blackberry-9000-unveiled.htm
    So within my .htaccess file I put this
    Redirect 301 http://yourworldwired.com/wordpress/?p=14 http://yourworldwired.com/blackberry-9000-unveiled.htm

    Inevitably when I went to check and see that everything was alright, I clicked that post and now the url for the post "Blackberry 9000 Unveiled is this.
    http://yourworldwired.com/wordpress/http:/yourworldwired.com/blackberry-9000-unveiled.htm
    How do I get it down to this
    http://yourworldwired.com/blackberry-9000-unveiled.htm

    It's pretty unnecessary to do redirection consider your blog being pretty new.
