Sorry, I'm not using the correct terms.
Yes, it is a control panel.
When we first started with this host, I imported our existing 301's (from htaccess) and the syntax looks like this:
Redirect 301 /folder/folder/filename.php http://www.example.com/folder/
I believe this is pretty typical, right?
I'll take another stab at explaining.
I discovered that for many of our articles, Google has indexed multiple filenames. I need to redirect these to the correct files.
What all of these filenames have in common is a 'number'; so rather than mess with all of the text and risk typos, I'll reference the numbers.
For the two filenames above, we need to redirect to:
So, to 'locate' the two source files, we need to look for *487.php
And the same scenario for other files.
I need a 'template' pattern (is that the right term?), where I create these 301's, and simply replace the number.
Make sense? Thanks much.
