A handful of old posts were deleted...and now trying to have old posts permalinks redirect to new posts. I placed the .htaccess file (below) in my /blog directory , but the redirect does NOT work ...instead, the browser returns "not found" (from WordPress Coraline 404.php template) when looking for http://mydomain.org/blog/?p=1111 (old post)
# BEGIN WordPress
Redirect 301 ?p=1111 http://mydomain.org/blog/?p=2222
# END WordPress
I only have about 8 of these redirects to do ...any help would be appreciated.
