Hello,

Should be simple, but I can't find with google searches.

I want to redirect all the content (pages, images) from my wordpress blog that used to be in the "Blog" folder into the main directory

Redirect 301 /blog/*wild card of any content and folders* http://www.darkstarmedia.net/*wild card of any content and folders*

I am building a new site and eliminating the blog folder, the whole site will be wordpress now

Will this conflict with the existing Wordpress rewrite?

Put it as the first rule so that it processes before any other wordpress specific rewrite
Should look something like this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^blog/?(.*) /$1 [R=301]
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

Open in new window


Also remember to update your 'WordPress Address' in General Settings
