I decided to migrate to blogger.

I used to have pages like www.mysite.com/page.html, but Blogger pages are now like www.mysite.com/p/page.html

When people use the old link which is posted on the forums, they get a 404 error. How can I prevent that?

There's no way to customize URLs in Blogger.


You should redirect the pages on the old site to the new addresses. On the old site, create a file called .htaccess in the root and fill it with entries like this:

Redirect 301 /page.html http://www.newsite.com/p/page.html

If the file names are the same on both sites, you can avoid typing lots of Redirect rules and do it like this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.newsite.com/p/$1 [R=301,L]

This will make all http://www.oldsite.com/page.html links point to http://www.newsite.com/p/page.html.
