trouble with permalinks (6 posts)

    I developed a Wp site in a subdirectory, them moved it to root when ready.

    I followed the direction listed at http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress carefully.

    My site is on a windows server so there is no htaccess file, but I made sure to copy the web.config file to root as well.

    Everything seems fine except the permalinks for the Projects post type (portfolio).

    I should mention that I'm using the custom permalink structure of /%category%/%postname%/

    After the site was moved, project posts no longer show the category in the slug, but instead use the words portfolio-view. However, regular posts show the correct slug.

    I found an aritcle that showed this line of code for the web.config file
    <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php?page_id={R:0}" />

    What I had was:
    <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php"/>

    I've tried both an nothing changes.

    Any advice appreciated

    Hi Kerry

    You might have tried this already. But try re-saving your permalinks.

    @kerrya4446 If you still have the old site up and running I would advice using a WordPress site cloning tool to move the site to a new server. Two good ones are WP Clone and Duplicator.

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/

    This makes the transfer process very easy and will only take 10 min or so, usually when using one of these tools I don't run into any errors.
