Moving WP to Root Folder and Keeping Existing Links Moving WP Keep Links pburke367 msg:4561443 6:16 pm on Apr 4, 2013 (gmt 0) I am moving a photography blog from [http://examplesite.net/wordpress] to [http://examplesite.net]. I need to redirect the existing links for pages and posts to the the new pages. [http://examplesite.net/wordpress/category/page-or-post/] to [http://examplesite.net/category/page-or-post/] I will be using the following rewrite: Options +FollowSymLinks RewriteEngine on RewriteRule (.*) [examplesite.net...] [R=301,L] Will this accomplish what I need? Thanks in Advance Paul

welcome to WebmasterWorld, Paul!
RewriteRule (.*) [examplesite.net...] [R=301,L]
this is incorrect syntax and won't do anything useful - probably detrimental to server function. you will need something in your RewriteRule Pattern that specifies a capture group excluding the "wordpress" part of the path and back-references that in the Substitution string. with a redirect you also want to specify a complete hostname starting with the protocol (http:) in the Substitution string.
