let's say you have to solve a little issue with URL-rewriting for a relaunch on Wordpress. It has to do with file extensions like .php or .htm, .html ect.
Let's say there are two working ways, which would you choose, considering "the long run" of the site, i.e., causing few playground for future issues and change necessities, dependancy:
-one of the available Wordpress plugins which do a more or less small rewrite-action within WP, supplementing the usual dynamic URL-creation
-redirecting the URL by mod_rewrite, server internal, without 301 (relaunch with WP doesn't actually change URLs, i.e., domain.de/bla.html --> domain.de/bla.html)
Considering the long run and not wanting to be faced with more or less "usual" issues like Plugin/WP-Updates, htaccess seems to be preferable?
Dependance, security, speed? htaccess again better, I suppose?
I'm not only faced with a certain site, it's more like a key question and basic issue for me, concerning other sites in future too.
