Taking out category from permalinks – Redirects? (1 post)

    I apologise for this double post. I think my first post didn't work as I put percentages and slashes in the title. So, here is what I posted an hour ago. Apologies.


    I have a site with a Permalink of /%category%/%postname% of over 350 blog posts and I want to change it to just postname /%postname%

    I have a few questions.

    Is there any quick way to do the redirects? So say I have a category of "fruits" could I put something in the htaccess that would redirect all posts that were originally site.com/fruits/postname to site.com/postname?

    And, secondly, it is bad to have too many redirects in an htaccess file? Would 350 slow down the site?

    I hope you'll forgive me if the question isn't entirely WordPress related!
