Component:  Codex       |   Keywords:
 Currently we have stub pages on Codex like this one:


 It includes a "this page has moved to" link, but doesn't automatically
 redirect. I believe it was done this way in order to retain the locale
 list on that page that links to translated versions of it such as

 We should 30x redirect as many of these as possible to equivalent HelpHub
 pages. This probably requires building a table (spreadsheet, csv?) listing
 every page that needs to be redirected. Perhaps something like:

 https://codex.wordpress.org/New_To_WordPress_-_Where_to_Start, 301,
 301, https://es.wordpress.org/support/article/new-to-wordpress-where-to-

 Additionally there are other non-stub pages that should be redirected or
 retired. For example:


 Some of these are category pages, some not. Ideally, anything that can be
 redirected to HelpHub or other documentation, should be redirected. We'll
 need destinations for those, whether it's part of the same list or
 something else manually created. It might also be helpful to have a list
 of remaining pages, so they can be manually dealt with.
