Simple 301 Redirects
Do I really need this? (2 posts)

    I plan on doing a Permalink change on my site but wondering if I even need this plugin. I ran a test on my dev WP blog (3.4.1) changed my Permalink structure from: /reviews/%postname%/ to /%category%/%postname%/

    But after I did that, I went to a page with the old permalink of domain.com/reviews/test/ and it automatically forwarded me to the updated permalink of domain.com/news/test

    Seems like WordPress does this automatically? Has this changed in 3.4.1 or something?

    Any help would be great!

    After a bit of reading up on it a little, my understanding is that WordPress will attempt to correctly redirect old posts if you update your permalink structure, but that it is in some way dependent on your server configuration and doesn't work for everyone. If it's working for you, you most likely do not need my plugin.
