I am about to move a wp site from a subdirectory to root, and want to have all the old permalinks redirected to the new permalinks at root.
mysite.com/wp/post-name-here to mysite/post-name-here.
In the current sub-directory can I add a simple redirect with wildcard in the htaccess or should I use the redirection plugin in the new blog location ?
If I go redirection plugin route: so far the info I am finding all seem to suggest I need to upload a csv list of all the old permalinks and the new permalinks.
Is there a way to add a wildcard to redirect all the old permalinks with mysite.com/wp/* to the new permalink structure mysite/* or an alternative approach?
