StatusNet has a feature called Fancy URLs, which is basically a way for the application to create SEO friendly URLs. This post is just a log of my experiences with this URL rewriting feature.
I want to display a list of related links for each post on my blog; this very blog in fact. I also want to be able to add external links to the related links from my site seamlessly. It is unfortunate that WordPress doesn’t have such a feature as a default widget, being that it is something very common across the web nowadays. So I’m going to be installing and trying a variety of available plugins in order to find the features I want. Should I not find exactly what I want I will then resort to rolling my own.
My original intention was to document the steps I had taken in using the script in a regular good ‘ol fashioned site, (meaning non CMS or Blog script). In the process of writing said tutorial I had to show a working sample on this blog. Since this is a WordPress, Pretty Photo had to be made to work with the existing theme. So I did the install and re-wrote the tutorial to address what I did to make it work on this WP blog.
Web Page redirection is a common task for any web master. In my winding road along this newly emerging dimension in human consciousness better known as the web, I have had the need to utilize page redirection for many different purposes, in many different ways.

In this article I do not intend to enumerate all the possible ways and reasons for performing a page redirection. Rather I will focus on those methods which I have used most often for particular situations.
