Using different permalink structures for posts

    I've started my blog with /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname% and already used an migration tool when moving from another blog system.

    Now, you could change it again and use migration tool. But it would be great to leave all old posts by the current permalink structure and have new post in another format like /%postname% ...

    There are some plugins that allow this but I am afraid that these won't be supported in later WordPress versions.

    So, setting up different permalinks structures by default in WordPress would be helpful...

    i think if you have different kinds of permalinks on the same url than im affraid search engines would be confused to crawl on your site?

    I think not, because pages can be also set in a different permalink structure compared to posts and search engines are more internal-link-oriented... if you have an date oriented blog with news, then I would keep it, but if write seldom it makes more sense in my view to have a different structure

    so pages - /%postname%
    posts - /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%

    It's just to keep old post as they are - even though redirects work fine - but to have maybe another structure optional for newer posts... just an idea

    I'am agree with Kiefer, it will be dangerous for your SEO to have different kind of permalink.

    It won't impact your SEO in the slightest. But it's trying to drive in forward and reverse at the same time.

    You can redirect them to /%postname% with .htaccess.

    I do find the permalink structure fairly "rigid" and wish there were more flexibility with it.

    Custom Post Types :)

    Have your posts that need to be Y/M/D be that.

    Have the others be foo/post
