So, I guess I’m basically calling for all the Permalink “Professionals” on this one lol. [Cough]Whooami, maybe a few others.. =P
Here’s the deal, I’ve basically had this permalink structure for some time now:
And was thinking about changing it to something like this maybe: /id/1234 or /1234
The question is, is there away to use the first choice of: /id/1234, or either way really.. without having to add tons of redirects in the .htaccess file?
What I’m afraid of though, is those that maybe had “saved”, bookmarked, or even done trackbacks to the articles.. =/ I’d hate to lose those people or screw up their “saved” whatevers.. =/
Sean Hayford O’Leary was telling me on GoogleTalk the other night, that’s what he had to do basically.. so those people wouldn’t be “lost”.
His suggestion was merely a suggestion, so those who wanted to type up an article’s URL, might be a little easier to remember the number of it, rather then the words for it.. =/
What do you all think is maybe the best thing to do? Leave it as is, or change it up? I’m just not sure what to do at this point sigh. =(
I could have also tried this all out on the localhost, but figured why bother, when I could just ask the question on here quick.
