Redirect Old Slugs feature needs to redirect slugs for pages, not just posts, and redirect old permalink structure
|Reported by:||Denis-de-Bernardy||Owned by:||markjaquith|
Create a page, browse to it, edit it, change its slug, WP redirects to the old page's slug and serves a 404. Wasn't WP 2.1 or WP 2.2 supposed to make the redirect old slug feature built-in?
Along the same lines, it would be sweet if instead of simply redirect old slugs, WP would redirect old urls. When the date changes, when the page parent changes, or when the permalink structure changes, the url changes but neither of WP, the redirect old slug plugin, the permalink redirect plugin, or anything else catches this.
