When you change the permalink structure then this is a problem for bookmarks of users and also for search engines to link to your posts. This plugin uses the slug of the new url and search for a ID in the database of WordPress. If it finds a post according to the slug, the Plugin will redirect to the correct post and send a header message “moved permanently 301” to change the url on the index of search engines.

I updated to WooCommerce 3.0 and began to experience many problems which I had to tackle one by one – One of the problems was that the Product Permalinks was “Product Category, Product Name” before. It then automatically changed to “Product/ Product Category, Product Name” – Which completely messed up my website and search engines went to 404 links. I couldn’t change it back – so I finally found this plugin – didn’t have to do anything else apart from install it and it completely solved my problem! Thanks a bunch!.
One question – Is this a permanant fix for all those links that are on search engines? Will they eventually change to the correct links and will I experience any problems moving on?
What more can i say?
This is the only plugin that solved my problem of changing the permalinks.
Save my life!
