Allows multiple permalink structures and category-specific permalinks without needing redirects.
Provides advanced permalink options that allow you to:
All permalinks are real permalinks and do not result in 301 redirections. This means you can change your permalink structure without affecting any existing posts and without losing any page rank. Any attempts to access posts in the wrong permalink structure will be automatically redirected to the correct URL.
Advanced Permalinks is available in: * English * Bulgarian (thanks to Alexander Dichev) * Belorussian (thanks to Marcis Gasuns) * Russian (thanks to Slava Mikheev) * Uzbekistan (thanks to Alexandra Bolshova) * Lithuanian (thanks to Nata Strazda at Web Hub)
Say you have an existing site with the default WordPress permalink structure
/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/ and you decide you want to change it
to a more keyword-heavy
/%category%/%postname%/. If you change the permalink setting then all your old posts will be moved, and you will suffer a major loss
of page rank (not to mention a lot of 404s). With Advanced Permalinks you can define a specific permalink structure for all your old
posts and then create a new permalink structure for new ones. All your old posts will carry on living at the same URL as before, but all
new posts will be created using your new structure.
Sometimes you want posts in a certain category to appear elsewhere on your site. For example, your usual permalink structure may result in:
However, you want posts in the 'review' category to appear as:
Using Advanced Permalinks this is not a problem.
