I had urls like example.com/?area=new-york. area is a custom taxonomy. I had to change the urls to example.com/new-york. I want to do a 301 to new urls if previous urls are accessed. and I want Google to update its index. I have been trying to define a rewrite rule that can accomplish this but I failed. Help needed!

You can use the Redirection plugin. This plugin supports full regular expressions and another interesting redirection functions.

  • Can't we just use add_redirect_rule() to accomplish that?
