Hi, we are redesigning at

The marketer in charge is changing the site structure slightly, and I would like to know if there's a tool that, once the new site goes live, can tell us what we need to do with 301 redirects,

I have the sitemap for the old site, I'll have the structure of the new site, and I can do it by hand if need be, but is there a handy tool out there? Both site are in wordpress. We also have thousands of products on the old site that I've transferred over, but did I get them all? Unknown.

What I usually do is to compare my sitemap using Araxy Merge or other diff tools.

But for WP that can be huge job

you can use a tool like this


Thanks, sorry it took me so long to get back to you.  I didn't know that the redirection tool would help me trakc down 404 errors. I'll look at Araxy Merge as well.
