In my blog, I used the Day and name permalink structure for many days. Recently I came to know the SEO tips and made the permalink structure to Post name.
So I migrated from:
It's very simple for me.
But not for the WordPress. I have many posts interlinked with each other, hand coded in posts. And their paths're in archive structure. Now in post name structure they are producing 404 error.
I used the redirection plugin, but doing a 301 redirection as mentioned above (from & to), is not working for me. I cleared my WP Super Cache's cached files and the browser's too.
In Yoast's SEO Plugin I got another permalink redirection, but not the one I want.
Please remember that, I don't have any structure like: domain.com?p=2 or something like that. I just want the archive portion in the URL (
%year%/%monthnum%/%day%) should be removed and my posts to be loaded.
To me both the structure are very simple and should redirect from one to another, as they both are in a common platform. But why the permalink structure changing won't redirect itself? Now I need to edit each and every page to edit the hand-coded links. :(
The question is: How can I solve the problem regarding permalink structure day and name to post name?
