Description

Typepad in particular does some really funky things with permalinks. They often have no relation to anything in the title, and none of their "slug" information is contained in their standard export, so there is literally no way to redirect those links.

It is possible to create a custom Typepad template that includes the needed information, and modify the WP importer to parse the extra info into slugs. Right now this is a hack, we should make this more intuitive.

Since this is all done in plugins now, I'm guessing this should be closed for invalid?
