Changing the Permalink Structure without Resetting the Facebook Like Counts? (2 posts)

    When changing the permalink structure of a blog, Facebook and Twitter will treat the articles with new URLs as brand new articles and will reset that Tweet/Like counters.

    Is there a way to resolve this issue?

    Thanks.

    Please let me know when you find the answer! I've changed my permalink structure as soon as the new version of WordPress came out (3.3) and followed the instructions for it at Yoast.com (http://yoast.com/change-wordpress-permalink-structure/). Because it didn't work I wanted to change back to my old permalink structure but it looks like Facebook and Google didn't pick it up yet. We tweets however are still ok.
