comment Icons (non-Latin symbols) displaying incorrectly
Thanks Kovshenin. That's a good point. I got that security stuff from someone else, and didn't see that omission. Fixing it now. Cheers.

comment What is the most efficient (ie. less server intensive) way for 301 redirects?
Thanks for this detailed explanation. As there are only a few pages needing redirection (due to sub-optimal permalinks going through an overhaul) there will be relatively few redirection requests. AND, as there may be other users wanting to set up the occasional redirect... I have now decided to go with a Wordpress plug-in approach. Am I correct in thinking that a plugin using wp_safe_redirect is basically the right approach?

Great. So, based on this, looks like I'll stick with using .htaccess. Any comment on whether the server impact from Wordpress handling the redirects is likely to be of any significance? (I am mostly now thinking of other sites, owned by clients, where editing .htaccess is something they would not be comfortable with).

comment Mixed content and expired session issues with SSL and wp-admin
Thanks for these suggestions. Regarding moving whole site to SSL. Two questions (which I've not looked into enough to answer for certain myself, 1) Does it prevent caching for being fully functional?, 2) Without making specialised tweaks to the server settings, etc., does it not negatively impact server load?

comment Best way to redirect site in subdirectory to root?
Thanks Phoenix. I suspect you misunderstood my questions. I apologise if it was not clear enough. Changing the site location in the way you have suggested, was what I'd done already. My issue was that this method does not take existing links (and subsequent 404 errors) into account. I needed a way to deal with 400+ posts suddenly having a 404 error. See my answer below for how I resolved that. Cheers...
