Forgive me if this has been addressed. I'm brand new to WP. My current blog is hosted on blogger using a custom domain. That was the extent of my web development experience, and that took me forever to figure out. Today I decided to try and get a WP blog up and running. I've not updated my DNS yet, as I want the site to appear "done" before I direct my current traffic to the new site.
My question is this...I'd like to keep the permalinks from my old posts that have already been indexed by google, as I get quite a few hits daily on several of them and they rank highly in search results. Going forward though, I'd like to go to a different permalink structure, say http://www.example.com/post-title or something similar. Is this possible? How do I accomplish this?
