Redirecting a page on WordPress

WordPress creates a unique link for each of your post. They are broken out with your URL then YYYY / MM / DD then what you are allowed to name your link. This is inconvenient when trying to reference back to yourself. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a shorter URL with your blog name in link verses publishing a TinyURL or some other shortening service.

After a little bit of research I found such a way. You have to create a new page on your blog and can keep the page private, then simply post the code below but make sure to change the “redirect_to_link” to the page you want to redirect your viewers to. You can name the page your short URL. Go ahead and visit http://timradney.com/IOPS it will redirect you to http://timradney.com/2012/07/06/iops-verses-throughput-measuring-performance-of-your-storage/ Which would you rather type?
