Permalinks to Category/Permalinks

Description

If you have an existing website and you want to add category to your blog posts links (e.g. by using: /%category%/%postname%/ in Settings > Permalinks) then your visitors
will most likely run into page not found errors. This plugin checks for such post links and redirects the visitor using permanent (301) redirect to the correct /Category/Permalink link IF the permalinks are setup.

This plugin assumes that you have previously used /%postname%/ in your Settings > Permalinks.

Reviews

Awesome! Works just like it should!

Your plugin just saved me HOURS of work. I changed permalink from /%postname%/
to /%category%/%postname%/ and afterwards, I had many 404’s.

So, I installed your plug-in and bam! It’s all worked perfectly. No more 404’s. Thank you!!

AWESOME PLUGIN

I just let you know I registered to thank you! Awesome plugin, thank you very much.
