Redirect going to index pages


#1

I have recently moved my blog from blogspot to its own domain . I have imported all the posts via the built in importer from blogspot into wordpress. I have tried to use your plugin to redirect but all the redirects go to the home page not to the actual posts

so

http://acidboxblues.blogspot.com/2013/05/ableton-tip-all-you-external-gear-in.html

redirects to http://www.acidboxblues.com/

instead of http://www.acidboxblues.com/tips-and-techniques/sequencing-tips/ableton-tip-all-you-external-gear-in-one-channel/

is there something I have done wrong? or something set up on my server I need to change?

thanks in advance

@studio54
First, run the fix.php file given here.

Seems like the problem with permalink structure which is using categories in it. You can try it by changing the structure to /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%.html.

Do let me know after making this changes, the problem persist.

Thanks.

I tried fix and it said done but the redirect still goes to the index page.
I have also changed the permalink and that had no effect either.
I have asked my host to disable security but so far had no luck

Cross check the points are done on your WP site http://rtcamp.com/groups/blogger-to-wordpress/forum/topic/blogger-redirects-to-homepage-but-not-to-specific-posts/#post-22666.
If you are using the hostgator server, then this article might be useful (also go through the comments).
As our plugin is working fine for everyone, so there might be a problem with hosting server.
Thanks.
