Setting up .htaccess URL Redirects in WordPress

The correct way to setup redirects within the WordPress .htaccess file is to put your redirects above the WordPress pretty permalinks code like so:

# BEGIN Redirects

Redirect 301 /from-here/ http://www.domain.com/to-here

# END Redirects

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress
