    Hi,

    In the past 48 hours, something caused all of our 1700+ URL’s to change from /articles/articlenumber.htm to /post-title/. What would cause this and how do I reciver the correct URL’s?

    Thanks,

    Cindy

    thanks for the super fast response, Maciej! I believe this is what you are requesting. Our site is realguns.com.

    How do I paste a screenshot here?

    Hi Cindy,

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to upload and attach it directly here. Please use one of image hosting websites, eg. imgur.com

    Hi Cindy,

    Could you check if any content type is selected in “Excluded content types” field displayed on the first screen of Permalink Manager settings?

    Thread Starter lesquealer

    (@lesquealer)

    Posts, pages and media are checked.

    Plugin Author Maciej Bis

    Ok, thank you! That is why your permalinks disappeared. Please uncheck “posts” and “pages” to revert to the previous custom permalinks you created with Permalink Manager.

    Thank you so much, Maciej! Could you please advise why our most recent two posts won’t accept /2017.htm but instead change to -2017-htm?

    No problem at all, I am happy to help 🙂

    If I am right, you probably tried to change the permalink by editing the native slug, which only lets you use letters, numbers, and dashes. To clarify, the original permalinks are based on them.

    Simply change the “Current URI” box to “articles/2007.html” to make this work.
