Will Magento 301 all pages if a category is moved?

Hi all

A main category has been moved in the category structure in the admin panel. In the time it has taken for someone to realise the category has been moved, Google has indexed the site.
I need to move the category back to where it was but I don’t want to create a ton of 404 pages as the pages won’t be there anymore.

If I move the category, will Magento automatically create 301 redirects from the old location to the new??

Thanks

No, Magento will generally *not* use 301 redirects automatically if you change a category name.  These usually have to be done by hand… :(
