migration headache (5 posts)

    Looking for a fix to my big mistake.

    All of my posts were:

    http://blog.domain.com/sitename/post name

    But I goofed and migrated all to:

    http://blog.domain.com/postname

    I omitted the sitename.

    I don't want to have to redirect each of 900 posts individually.

    Huge thank you for any help

  2. How did you migrate them?

    I paid someone to do it. Not very much, but a professional

    I'm sure it was the simple, common method.

    Went from TypePad to WordPress. All posts, pages, and comments were migrated.

    They did it correctly - as far as I can tell. Do you think I should ask them to fix this? I gave them the old URL and the new. Should they have noticed that there was a permalink difference? I am confused and worried.

    I can provide url if that would help.

  4. They should have noticed, yes. You can either put in an .htaccess redirect /sitename/ to the URL without, or you can edit your permalinks to put it back in.

    I would ask them to fix it, since they were paid for it.

    I've written to them.
    Waiting for a response.
    Thanks

    I guess putting it back in is the easy way out - if they cannot/will not fix problem.
