    Hi all,

    I have a problem after I have changed permalinks structure.

    I changed it from

    For the articles, i set a 301 redirection on the htaccess.

    But in webmaster tool, it retrieves me a lot of 404 errors on attachments and media related to articles.

    I dont know why it keep lookin for the old structure /year/postname/name of media page

    Basically I think to fix that, i would have to set another 301 redirection specific to attachment and media.
    But I can't find a way to do so...

    Anyone can help me ?
    Thank u in advance.

    I believe it has to do with google index. They need to get back around to crawling your site, to re-index the new pages/permalink structure. I'm not 100%, so hopefully someone more knowledgeable on SEO can chime in.

    Interested as well.

    Hi Evan,

    Actually I was thinking the same thing as you... But it's been a long time now, I mean something like more than 1 month.
    But its still in error...
    And in my sitemap, the structure of the attachment files is correct too...
