Here is a question that I couldn't get a direct answer for.
I run a popular blog at WordPress.com
Now, I intend to transfer it to a new self-hosted WP.org site.
All my posts on my current blog fall into two categories. And, I intend to transfer each category to different sub-directories on the news site.
And, I know how to do all that.
However, I would like to set up site redirects in that manner too.
That is: category/news on my current site to be redirected to one of the new sub-directory on the new site, and the other (category/blog) to be redirected to the second sub-directory on the new site.
I doubt WordPress.com's redirect function allows/enables this. (though the staff didn't give me clear answer).
The experts at my new website's webhosting service are not certain either.
Therefore, I am hoping that while I will setup at WordPress all permalinks to go to one of the subdirectories of my new site, there might be a tweak in the WP.org software or something like that can help me the kind of redirect I wanted in the first place.
I assume I am not the first to ask this, though I couldn't find anything on Google that helps someone like me - with out htpaccess at old site.
I appreciate your help.
Thanx in advance.
