I am planning a migration from a self-hosted Movable Type blog to a wordpress.com blog. As I understand it, WordPress.com does not allow configuration of blog URLs. Is there any way to elegantly handle the existing URL structure, which otherwise will result in 404s?
For example, if there is currently an archive page at:
and after the import to wp.com it looks like this:
We will eventually buy the domain mapping so the URL root looks the same, but is there any way to automatically redirect <root>/emmablog//archives/* to <newroot>/*?
The blog I need help with is movabletypeimporttest.wordpress.com.
