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
