Here are the steps to correctly migrate URLs from a custom ASP.NET solution to WordPress:
- Map the old URLs to the new WordPress URLs: This involves creating a spreadsheet that maps the old URLs to the new WordPress URLs, taking into account the new structure of the WordPress site.
- Set up redirects: Once the mapping is complete, you will need to set up redirects from the old URLs to the new WordPress URLs. This can be done using .htaccess on an Apache server, or through IIS on a Windows server.
- Update internal links: You will also need to update any internal links within your content to point to the new WordPress URLs. You can use a search and replace tool to automate this process.
- Test the redirects: Before going live, you should test the redirects to ensure that they are working correctly. You can use a tool like Screaming Frog or Google Search Console to crawl your site and verify that all of the redirects are in place.
- Launch the new WordPress site: Once you have tested the redirects and updated any internal links, you can launch your new WordPress site.
Note: These steps may vary slightly depending on the specific setup of your ASP.NET solution and your WordPress site, so it is best to consult with a developer experienced in both platforms to ensure a smooth migration.
