Permalinks broken after using wordpress importer (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I have used wordpress importer to import posts from an old site on the same server, I am keeping the new site in a different directory behind a 503 so that the duplicate content doesn't effect rankings. The thing is after I did the import (all the posts are now there) all the permalinks (navigation) on the new site no longer work, in fact they take me to a "can't find what you looking for" page. Could anyone enlighten me as to why this would happen?

    Cheers,
    Olly

    Oh and the "can't find page" is called from the old site

    Ahh figured it out, the 503 was directing the permalinks to the old site. Doh!
