    After moving my blog from Typepad to WP, I find many visitors still trying to reach me using old TP format links. Because my mod_rewrite rules are acting up, the links aren't converting & those visitors are seeing this:

    <BLOCKQUOTE>Not Found

    Sorry, but the page you requested cannot be found.</BLOCKQUOTE>

    Could someone tell me where I can change the text of this message so I may provide some general directions on how to find the post they're looking for. And how do I change the text?

    Is that a 404 ?
    If so you could write a custom 404 which explains the situation and has links in. Codex has such a guide.

    I found it under '404 template' I think in my theme interface & changed the wording.
