I posted something on a theme site with a misspelled title (thus the slug too). Instead of asking the site owner to fix the link, I corrected the title and slug and tried using a temporary redirect in .htaccess. But it doesn’t work with the WP permalink structure I’m using (/year/month/day/slug/). At the moment I have the title fixed but left the misspelled slug alone so the link works.
I tried both post-specific and even a directory-specific (thinking that the WP permalink looks more like a directory):
Redirect /imblog/2005/02/11/lucious/ http://www.inkmuse.com/imblog/2005/02/11/luscious/
Redirect /imblog/2005/02/11/lucious http://www.inkmuse.com/imblog/2005/02/11/luscious/
(even tried with a slash after lucious in the directory example)
Regardless, both process at the target site as
http://www.inkmuse.com/imblog/2005/02/ 11/luscious/?year=2005&monthnum=02 &day=11&name=lucious&page=
(line breaks added to keep code in the column)
Is it not possible to do a redirect as I’ve written? Granted I could write it like this:
Redirect /imblog/2005/02/11/lucious/ http://www.inkmuse.com/imblog/index.php?
Except you can’t easily use & in a redirect without causing a server 500 error.
How can this be accomplished?
