Redirecting Blogger label/archive links to WP

Hi, I was following your instruction on redirecting Blogger label/archive links to corresponding pages in the new WP site, and added the following codes into my .htaccess file but nothing happened. Is there anything else I should be doing to make the directin work?

Redirect archives RewriteRule ^([0-9]{4})

([0-9]{1,2})([0-9]{1,2})_archive.html$ $1/$2/ [L,R=301]

Redirect labels/categories RewriteRule ^search/label/(.*)$ category/$1/ [L,R=301]


The .htaccess rule is for redirecting your blogger archives pages to WordPress archives links

and your blogger label URL get redirect into WordPress Categories URL


I'm having this issue as well...I added that code in the .htaccess file...the archives are redirecting but not the labels....

Any idea why?

Okay, nevermind they are working but we converted categories to tags so I changed the code to be:

RewriteRule ^search/label/(.*)$ tag/$1/ [L,R=301]

And that worked except that she has some tags that are more than one word. So on google there are links like this one: and those give us a 404 page. I need that %20 to convert to a hyphen...not a space

Do you know how?


You can use smart 404 plugin which will take care of such URLs.
