Site migration trailing url problem

Hi,

I’m going to be moving a wordpress site to Drupal this week. I found a script that does most of the work, but there as SEO related issue that I’m not sure about and would like some expert opinion.

Currently all of the post is wordpress take thsi form http://www.example.com/page-1-url/

Where as in drupal the trailing slash is ommited: http://www.example.com/page-1-url

Using a Drupal module called ‘Global Redirect’ I can have request for pages automatically forwarded to url without the trailing slash. The module even throws SE a 301 so they know the page was permanently moved.

What I’m not sure about is the XML sitemap. Should i just generate a new site map with the new urls (no trailing slash)? or should i specify something in the xml sitemap or even add ~500 lines to the .htaccess for every page that was moved?

Thanks.

Generate a new site-map.
