Changing Permalinks Without Losing Older Posts? (2 posts)

    hello, first post on this forum.

    our blog - blog.hollywoodtoysandcostumes.com - would like to change our permalinks from the Default (/?p=123) to the Day and Name setting (/2009/02/12/sample-post).

    from what i've read, making this change will retroactively affect ALL of our blog posts, not just the ones from this date forward. is there any way to do this without losing our inbound links from ~200 or so previous posts? finally, is it possible to script a re-direct from the old permalink URLs to the new permalink URLs?

    thanks for your time.

    The default permalinks will still work no matter what you change your permalinks to be, so your incoming links will not break.
