Support » Fixing WordPress » Taking out category from permalinks – Redirects?

  • 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 to

    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!
