    How to redirect one blog post to a page in Wordpress?

    Hi,

    I would like to redirect a blog post in my site to a page. May I know how can I do that?

    This is the blog post
    http://www.websproutconsulting.com/wordpress-blogging-workshop
    and I want to redirect to this page
    http://www.websproutconsulting.com/what-we-do/wordpress-blogging-workshop.

    Appreciate any help, thank you.

    You can make a permanent 301 redirect on your host's control panel. For cPanel go to Domains > Redirection. Doing this also tells Google that you have moved the page to a new location.

    Hi,

    I tried to do the redirect inside my Cpanel but it shows 404:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /what-we-do/wordpress-blogging-workshop was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


    The thing is that the page exists, when I remove the redirect then the page loads up fine.. This is strange.. anyone can help?

    You can install the plugin named "redirection" and set whatever URL to go to whatever other URL you want. easy to use and understand. Or you could edit your .htaccess file (via ftp) and add the rule by hand, but that's more complicated than using the redirection plugin (by Goodley -- I think).

    Metas may be easier and do the job in most cases.

    But browsers can "turn off" redirects. Using htaccess intercepts the request and sends it elsewhere every time.
