Does WordPress has a built in redirection enginge?


Today I found that WordPress reroutes web pages without a redirect guideline. State that I have web page “mypage/slug1”. If I get in “mypage/whatever/slug1”, it obtains rerouted to “mypage/slug1”.

This behavior is excellent given that with my previous CMS the link was “mypage/whatever/slug1”. Every person that has actually bookmarked these old link: s come right without I need to anything.

I still question if it is excellent search engine optimization method to by hand reroute “/ whatever/slug1” to “/ slug1”?
