Ghost redirects can be created in JSON or YAML, I did mine with regex and the latter.

You only need one 301 redirect in your redirects.yaml file:

301:
    ^\/[0-9]+\/[0-9]+\/[0-9]+\/(.+): https://your-domainhere.com/$1

This will match the /year/month/day/ (or variation there-of) standard and put the ending part directly to the domain.

Note: You may have to restart your Ghost instance to get the redirects to work and try it in a new/different browser (or in incognito/private mode).
