Changing post-type names and don't kill SEO (6 posts)

    I'm trying to change my theme in my blog. This theme came with some post-types. I like those post-types, but they're in english.

    I want to try them changing in spanish, but I guess I'll be having mayor SEO problems with that. I had that same problem when I change my tags and category names for pemalinks to spanish.

    My site has 4 year alive, so my SEO is pretty much a big thing.. I don't want to loose all because a change like this.

    What I was thinking is that maybe there's a way to redirect people who's in trying to enter into the "Movie-review" post-type to redirect them to "peliculas". But don't know how to do this. Maybe some .htaceess magic?

    I used this plugin to redirect a variety of different things (moving posts to a new site, changing cats, etc.)

    Works great for me

    just an fyi, you can edit the slug name for the register_post_type and taxonomies and it won't break your post_type's and custom taxonomies

    This being the part where it makes the slug of the array with register_post_type

    'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'comic', 'with_front' => true, 'feeds' => true ),

    ^ just rename the slug into the language of your choice and the URL lines etc will all use that slug on the front end

    Actually, thats a good option, but not possible for me.
    I'm using the awesome and mega customizable theme MADE and in this case I don't control that part, since it have lots of stuff going on there.

    This is the theme I'm talking about: http://themeforest.net/item/made-responsive-reviewmagazine-theme/2557495

    Just an tidbit of information, the WordPress forums do not support paid-for themes so in the future you would have to contact themeforest's support.

    However, yeah you do have access to those register_post_type's, they're in there someplace.
