A client of mine scrapped his entire wordpress site of many years for a custom CMS. The URL structures both use the
/<post_title> format, so a pattern based .htaccess rule is out of the picture for saving the old urls. The old site is effectively dead, but I'd hate to let all of those thousands of backlinks simply die a 404 death.
Is there a faster way than listing each url in a .htaccess directive to redirect 1000s of urls to the home page? (Faster as in load speed, not programming efficiency)
