b2evolution 2 wordpress

with 3 comments

Well, I have switched from b2evolution to WordPress CMS. And thanks to Apache’s mod_rewrite, I was able to keep all my old links intact. Here’s how:

### wordpress:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
# basic:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /gistools/discuss/weblogs/blogs/
# file:
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
# dir:
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /gistools/discuss/weblogs/blogs/index.php [L]
# [R] Redirect [L] Last rule
# post:
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} title=([^&]+)
RewriteRule ^index\.php /gistools/discuss/weblogs/blogs/%1\.html? [r=301,nc]
# archive – monthly:
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} m=([0-9]{4})([0-9]{2})
RewriteRule ^index\.php /gistools/discuss/weblogs/blogs/%1/%2? [r=301,nc]
# archive – category:
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} cat=15
RewriteRule ^index\.php /blog/category/aspatial [r=301,nc]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} cat=14
RewriteRule ^index\.php /blog/category/spatial [r=301,nc]
### end wordpress

This was how the old URL looked like, http://www.spatiallink.org/gistools/discuss/weblogs/blogs/?title=gisp_and_aicp. Note that there were limitations to permalink, since %year%, %day% or %category% were unknown from the old URL. Fortunately, I had only 2 categories, so this was a cinch.
