Hi Everyone,


I have another PF blog that I just took over and the current permalink structure has the post date/post name structure. I want to change it to just the post name. I know if I log into my site I can change the permalink structure there, but the site has a good number of incoming links. Will changing the permalink structure break those links and what can I do (easily hopefully!) to keep those links in tact when making the change?

You can add redirect code to your .htaccess file to setup a 301 redirect from your old structure to your new structure.

I use quickredirects, adding a 301 redirect, but if you have a lot of pages/posts, this probably won't be the most efficient way…
