Hi folks,

I'm running a WordPress site which is taking registration for an event and the organizers are postponing the event indefinitely.  I need an easy way to get all of the content (about 30 pages and posts) to redirect to a single page.  

Any suggestions?

You could use a RewriteRule in your Apache config.

Either of these should redirect all pages to new page.  The difference is whether the user sees the new (redirected) address in their browser address field or not.

RewriteRule ^.*$ new.html
RewriteRule ^.*$ new.html [R]
 

Open in new window

if you host your own site on apache you could add a mod_rewrite rule that would do it -
Here's a link to the rewrite guide
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html

rewrite syntax can be tricky so - this may not be as easy as using a wordpress plugin like

Yeah, I know I can do this with mod-rewrite but I was really looking for a cheap and easy way so I can recommend it to people who host WP sites who may not have access to someone who can do .htaccess-fu.

The plugin looks interesting, though.

Any other suggestions?
