Can I create a URL redirect to a post?
You have a couple choices.
The best one is to contact the linking site and ask them to fix the broken link. That will resolve most of your problems and make them happy as you’ve helped them as well.
The other is to create a post with that URL (create a post and set the date to the bad link date) and put a link on that post to the correct post. It’s an ugly fix, but best you can do with WordPress.com as there isn’t a redirect feature here.
I’d choose option one. :D
And congrats on the referrer link!
Yeah i went down plan A but apparently it was a “closed box” upload, which basically meant to me that the host was paid to upload the info, not edit it, and he wasnt interested in helping out.
So i went with Plan B, created a post to the broken link and then linked from that. It was a bit clunky but I got to make a good Star Wars joke out of it, so it wasnt that bad in the end.
Cheers for the advice.
