I wonder if someone has experienced this problem and could help.
When I moved my site to wordpress, I used the default permalink structure instead of /category/postname. Now I'm using category/postname, but I can't get 301 redirects to function because of the modrewrite stuff in the .htaccess.
My old structure was:
My new structure is:
When I try to implement a simple redirect from one to the other, WP redirects the page to:
which is broken of course, because of modrewrite statements like ...
RewriteRule ^(.+)/([^/]+)(/[0-9]+)?/?$ /index.php?category_name=$1&name=$2&page=$3 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^(.+)/?$ /index.php?category_name=$1 [QSA,L]
I've tried messing around with these but only succeeded in breaking my site ...
... I wonder if anyone else has encountered it and found a workaround?
