I'm pretty new at this blogging thing, so I've made a few mistakes. I had a post which had a trackback. Unfortunately, I posted it twice, so I deleted the first post. I'm getting a lot of hits to the first post now, which means people are getting the "Sorry, this post does not exist" message.

It would be great if I could have edited one of the posts and either have it automatically redirect to the other or created a link to the other post and assign it a "stealth" status -- accessable by the public but doesn't show up unless it's directly accessed.

You can do this with .htaccess and a 301 redirect. Open up your .htaccess file and add this.

# Permanent redirect from one post to another
Redirect 301 /index.php?title=post-to-redirect-from http://

Note that the first url doesn't include the domain name, but the second one does. A 301 redirect is nice because the search engines will take note that the page has moved.
