At this time an entire url is much like this:

website.com/en_us/multimedia/blogs/podcast/2011/08/publish-title/

I wish to shorten the above mentioned hyperlink to that one:

website.com/podcast/2011/08/publish-title/

Having a search engine optimization friendly 301 redirect.

Can anybody suggestions about how do i accomplish this?

Thanks!

My current .htaccess file is:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

# uploaded files
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

# add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^ - [L]
RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $1 [L]
RewriteRule  ^[_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/(.*\.php)$ $1 [L]
RewriteRule . index.php [L]

To simply redirect from website.com/en_us/multimedia/blogs/podcast/2011/08/post-title/ to website.com/podcast/2011/08/post-title/ add the next for your .htaccess file, in front of every other rules which are there.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/en_us/multimedia/blogs/(.+)$ [NC]
RewriteRule . http://%{HTTP_HOST}/%1 [L,R=301]
