Switching Permalinks

      Comments Off on Switching Permalinks

When I first set up this blog I selected the WordPress option to use “numeric” permalinks for posts, which just assigns a sequence number to each post. Over time I became increasingly unsatisfied with this. Among other things it makes it hard to interpret the http logs.

So I just switched to a date-name format. By default this would have the effect of breaking all the existing links to this blog, so I am also using Dean Lee’s Permalinks Migration Plugin which should automatically redirect all the old URLs to the new ones.

So everything should work transparently without any problems, but if you notice that any links to or within this site seem to be broken, please give me a heads-up by replying to this post.
