Changing Permalink Structure and Redirection Plugin (1 post)

    Hi,

    I have a blog that I've maintained for seven years now. I have the default permalink structure and I want to change it to include the post name.

    My first question is, for SEO, what permalink structure should I choose? I know I want post name included, but should I also include post id? date?

    Secondly, I have installed the Redirection plugin to handle the 404's resulting from changing the permalink. When I activate the plugin, VOILA! I have beautiful links to my posts----

    EXCEPT on my home page. I have a 404 error on my homepage, on the first post

    My blog lives in a folder on my root called WordPress. My home page is http://www.lauralohr.com/wordpress, however, my links come up http://www.lauralohr.com/name-of-the-post.

    I'm not sure what needs to be done to make my home page not 404.

    In settings, in the dashboard, my WordPress Address (URL)is http://www.lauralohr.com/wordpress. My Site Address (URL)is http://www.lauralohr.com.

    Any help would be much appreciated!
