Hi is there an easy way to fix broken links in WordPress and redirect them to the correct pages.

When I moved the website over to a new server, the WP export seems to have messed up some of my links.

An example would be
http://www.endthetrendnow.com/2011/0...ttbike-review/

Should now link to the page

http://www.endthetrendnow.com/wattbike-review/

Thanks

    Hi,

    Sounds like you need a 301 redirect plugin. Try this one Simple 301 Redirects. A 301 redirect will send the necessary message to the search engines so that they will update their links. A WordPress plugin is a user friendly way of doing it. If a plugin doesn't work, you'll need to go into htaccess files.

    The links you provided are the same but no worries we know what you are trying to achieve from the link text

    Regards,
    Michael

    Hey Michael, I am trying the plugin 404 Redirected, so it appears it is working with the above bad link.

    I think you should use the broken link plugin. If you use wordpress platform for your blog, you can found a lot of this plugin and choose the one as you desire.
