Hi, Ian,

There is also a commercial product my company built, called SEO manager - it's a URL manager where you can define custom 301 redirections from edit/admin mode, define simple addresses, etc. Also, when an editor moves a page, these redirects are automatically added without a need for user actions. There is a way to import URLs from the old site and redirect them to the new one.

If you are interested, take a look at
