Fixed the old links finally….
/disregard this post if you hate web technology /
Well I finally fixed the old links here. Just when I set up WordPress for the first time, I used a really really bad permalink structure (it looked like /2004/11/17 etc. where the last figure was the post ID) which I changed to include the post name instead later. But a lot of search engines picked up the old links, and I thought instead of reaching a 404 page, better to redirect the user to the correct page. So with a little .htaccess hacking I made that work.
