All my articles have a Facebook, Google+, StumbleUpon, etc. buttons so people can recommend them to others. Following the article from Yoast about Permalinks (http://yoast.com/change-wordpress-permalink-structure/) I have changed my permalink structure from custom structure (/%postname%/) to the new "post name" structure. Everything worked fine but I've lost all my Facebook likes, Google+ recommendations, ... Changing back to my old custom structure doesn't seem to work, literally. Although WP is telling me that I saved the changes (Permalink structure updated.), the bullet of "Post name" is still selected.
- which permalink structure do I have now?
- how can I get my likes and recommendations back?
