    I updated my pretty links structure. The posts which has some cross references have been updated, however some of the search engine crawlers are reporting 404 errors on my earlier older pretty link structure trackback address.

    Ex.
    http://www.mysite.com/blog/post-name/trackback (Old url reporting 404 error now)
    http://www.mysite.com/blog/category-name/post-name/trackback (working fine)

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Add this code in htaccess:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    ErrorDocument 404 /index.php?error=404
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    Now, check with all links.

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    Use the Redirection plugin from the plugins repository. It will allow you to redirect x old url to y new url.
