I am a little confused with the URL Redirection feature.
In the documentation section, you have the example of forwarding my domain to (for example) google.com as an external url, but what about if I want to redirect URLs coming from (for example) google.com to my site's url.
I am in the process of converting all my Joomla sites to WP and I would like to redirect previous urls that are listed in google.com/bing.com to new urls in my site.
For example, if someone find https://mysite.com/index.php/menu/series/video-1 in google.com but, after the conversion to WP, the new url is https://mysite.com/videos/video-1, what is the best way to approach this?
Also, is it possible to use a wildcard to minimize the entries? For example, I need something like this:
My Joomla Site urls: -> My new WP Site urls:
https://mysite.com/index.php/menu/series/video-1 -> https://mysite.com/videos/video-1
https://mysite.com/index.php/menu/series/video-2 -> https://mysite.com/videos/video-2
https://mysite.com/index.php/menu/series/video-3 -> https://mysite.com/videos/video-3
https://mysite.com/index.php/menu/series/video-4 -> https://mysite.com/videos/video-4
One of my Joomla sites has thousands of urls and it would be awesome to achieve the URL Redirection with fewer queries. Is it possible? If so, how can I do this?
For the previous example, can I use something like this:
https://mysite.com/index.php/menu/series/% -> https://mysite.com/videos/%
Your help is really appreciated.
