I'm trying to consolidate categories on my wp website and need help with 2 similar but different situations. I'm using the redirection plugin.
(Also I'm already using Yoast's Seo Plugin which already gets rid of the category sub folder. mysite.com/category/dogs/ -> mysite.com/dogs/ ....the plugin also adds the trailing slash..not sure if this is relevant, but want to provide as much info as possible)
1. I'm changing the slug of a category that I will continue to use from:
/cute-dogs/ -> /cute-and-fluffy-dogs/
I did a plain old redirect, but that doesn't redirect the pages?- ie. /cute-dogs/page/2/ -> /cute-and-fluffy-dogs/page/2/
So is there a regular expression I can use in this case?
2. I'm getting rid of /fluffy-dogs/ and redirecting to /cute-and-fluffy-dogs/ (the category above). Again, I did a plain old redirect but it doesn't redirect the pages..ie:
/fluffy-dogs/page/2/ -> /cute-and-fluffy-dogs/page/2/
The same regular expression may work for both? But I'm not sure. Any help is greatly appreciated!
