Download links dont work since last update (3 posts)

    I use woo-commerce 1.6.6 ,
    I sell downloadable products , my download links used to work, but somewhere between the last update of woocommerce and the last update of wordpress they now only show 404 error. links that used to work....

    I read somewhere a suggestion to change my permalinks setting to :
    Wordpress Permalink Settings - custom structure > /%category%/
    but I'm afraid to do that since i have an old blogger blog directed into my new WP site, based on a month and name structure :
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/

    I'm worried that if I change the link structure I will loose that, so i cant risk it.

    Does anyone have another suggestion to solve this ?
    Its a real pain to have all your customers sending emails saying the download link show 404 ....

    Thanks !
    p.s.
    woocommerce pages tab : Product base page Prepend product permalinks with shop base page (shop) - is ticked

    Well, I'd try changing your permalinks to see if that even fixes the problem. if it does, then you can always use Advanced Permalinks to redirect your old permalink structure to your new url's so the links still work.

    Failing that, I could look at it for you. permalink problems can definitely be a headache.
