404 error, help! (3 posts)

    I purchased the site redirect for $13 so that my old blog azcubed.wordpress.com, would be redirected to my new blog, Domesticsuperhero.com.

    Whenever I click an old link to my blog, it brings me to the new blog, but with a 'not found 404' error. How can I fix this? If I can't get people redirected to my links, this is pointless. Help!!

    Example: http://domesticsuperhero.com/2012/10/08/basket-liner/

    http://domesticsuperhero.com/2012/08/30/fresh-crab-cakes/

    The blog I need help with is domesticsuperhero.com.

    I have noticed that the problem is likely the links, that they are not exactly the same...for example:

    http://azcubed.wordpress.com/2012/10/08/basket-liner/

    http://domesticsuperhero.com/basket-liner/

    For some reason when I uploaded my wordpress.com to my new site, they took out all those automated dates that wordpress.com had put into my posts. I tried to add the dates into the new blog links, but it will not let me add a slash (/) into the link!!! Can someone please help me?? I posted over at wordpress.com, but they told me to post here since it is a self hosted blog.

    Try resetting your custom permalinks back to the default setting via Settings -> Permalinks. If this works, then review Using_Permalinks before setting a custom permalink structure back up again.
