WP SEO Redirect 301
[resolved] same website- different system (3 posts)

    This is a solution we've been looking for for a long time... Question is (perhaps a stupid one), will this work for a website that was built on a different system and now moved to wordpress? We want to keep the same domain name, but the old system is based on joomla.

    I know what you mean, technically you can if you add the record manually in the database.

    If you look in the wp_slug_history database table, insert the post_id of the current page in post_id field and the old url in the url field.

    Basically if the page you want to go to doesn't exist, it goes to this database table, finds the old url and redirects the user to the new page, which is dictated by the post id.

    Sorry for not having a UI to do this extra functionality but it takes time to do, and I'm stretched at work.
