different sets of permalinks? (5 posts)

    I have WP 2.1.2 installed and working perfectly. The issue Im having is that about a week ago I changed the permalinks (I can see you all cringe now) and of course, the links from Search engines no longer work and if you use them you get a 404. I understand the problem here HOWEVER, my question is:
    Is there a way to correct this and can I go BACK to the other style of permalink so that all the links will work?

    Currently Im using: /%category%/%postname%.html
    formerly was: /%category%/%postname%

    So to recap: is there a way that I can go back to the old site without screwing up the new posts .. can I somehow reset all the posts to be one or the other?

    I tried making a change and reposting but that didn't change a thing.

    Thanks in advance.

    I created a plugin that might work for you:

    Permalinks Moved Permanently
