[resolved] changing permalinks so I can use breadcrumbs plugin (2 posts)

    I just realized to my horror that I chose stupid permalinks (I've already been pageranked for them and everything). What I should have done is category/page, but instead I used the stupid date format.

    I tried switching it over briefly to use the jixor breadcrumbs plugin (I'm using 1.5). But I found my categories were showing up inconsistently. From what I could tell:

    - top level categories showed up in expected ways.
    http://www.domain.com/learn-about/ <- fine

    - sublevel categories showed up with an unexpected prefix:
    http://www.domain.com/category/learn-about/something/ <-bad

    - strangely enough, main level categories seem to appear okay whether or not you use http://www.domain.com/learn-about or http://www.domain.com/category/learn-about (but subcategories don't)

    Needless to say this screwed up the breadcrumb attempt.

    Any ideas about how to work around this or what's happening?

    Okay, reading about permalinks below, it looks like domain.com/category/ is here to stay.

    So I guess now my question is, is there a breadcrumbs plugin that will insert the "category" part correctly?
