I'm not entirely sure where I can even ask this question as it pertains to both HTML and WP.
Anyways, our old intranet solution basically held a bunch of .htm documents that we made in Word and then turned into .htm.
We have switched to a WP solution and have begun uploading these .htm docs as media as it is the easiest solution for the 1700 docs we have. The issue is, these .htm docs contain hyperlinks inside of them that link to other .htm docs on our old website. This means that once we decommission our old server, all of those hyperlinks will be dead. I'm talking about thousands of useless links inside of the .htm docs.
How can I solve this problem? Ideally, we don't want to individually edit each .htm doc and change the links inside of them. We have also tried the html to post converter plugin but it makes the formatting all wonky. We don't want to, but should we just keep the old server as a file server of sorts so the links still work?
