    legacy URL's lookup Link to this post

    Using SS3.0
    I have an existing hand coded site with some 800 pages and a url structure which is a mess!

    I have migrated the pages over to SS (thanks for previous help) and improved the structure.

    Obviously I want the old URL's to translate into the new URL's (each page has a field (OldURL) to store this).

    It would seem madness to create a massive .htaccess file to manage these translation and I cannot seem to find a way to do it with SS which is bound to mean I have missed something.

    All help gratefully received

    I've used this before on a 2.4x site when I have migrated from a messy hand-coded site, although you will have to probably automate the database conversion. I assume that it works on 3 now: https://github.com/ajshort/silverstripe-linkmapping
