Hi,

 

I have just completed 301s for a website that just moved to WordPress but am not sure how to handle the WordPress blog posts which have been accumulating since 2007.

 

The blogs were in WP from the start, but are now showing up as 404s.

 

Does one have to redirect every post individualy to its new URL?

 

Thanks

Caro

Yep, or change the post "slug" so it matches the original URL(s).

Thank you,

 

I'll see if it can be done.  Since I posted this earlier today I discovered that the original blog posts were on WordPress.com and have the blog.site.com/YYYY/MM/DD/blog-post-name URL, and the new site doesn't have the date part in the middle.

 

Does you suggestion still apply?

If you are republishing the posts on a different domain you cannot implement the 301-redirects. I don't see any way to redirect from Wordpress.com's free subdomains to another domain.

ON EDIT:

This page at Wordpress.com *may* have what you're looking for but it's not clear to me:

http://en.support.wo.../map-subdomain/

Read the section near the end titled "Pointing a subdomain of a domain registered with WordPress.com to an outside website". That's the best I can do with so little detail about your situation.
