HTML Import 2

    Hi,

    I am importing a lot of HTML pages, and the filename.html needs to become postname=filename (I solved the .html part)

    Right now the title is taken as the postname

    any workaround ??

    Thx

    Dan

    The importer doesn't use the file name as the post name because WordPress requires unique post names, even at different levels of the hierarchy. The .htaccess rewrite rules provided are intended to solve the problem by seamlessly redirecting visitors to the new location regardless of its URL.

    See the discussion in this thread for a potential workaround.

    Your clients are wrong. :) I know you can't tell them so bluntly, but that's simply not how WordPress works, and it's going to bite them in the future.

    how would you argue the "will bite them part"... ? you think that seo wise static wordpress is not helpfull?
