Custom Permalink Structure Now Applied to Tag and Category Base in 3.1.1? (3 posts)

    This problem affects all of my seperate WP sites. I have not changed anything on my LAMP server which is running all the latest php, apache, and mysql versions.

    I started getting a bunch of 404 errors in Goggle webmaster tools and though I would investigate. Turns out WordPress has now re-written my category and tag base's to reflect my custom permalink structure.

    My custom permalink structure: /archive/%postname%/
    Example original: mysite.com/tag/example-tag
    Example after upgrade: mysite.com/archive/tag/example-tag

    To resolve my problem (as long as WordPress doesn't magically change back one day) i simple added this to all of my sites .htaccess files.

    Redirect 301 /tag /archive/tag
    Redirect 301 /category /archive/category

    Anyone else see this after updating?

    I just verified that the problem is with the change from 3.1 to 3.1.1 I had a blog that I neglected to update so I just did that a second ago and the permalink structure changes exactly as I described above.

    YES. This definitely happened to me too, and I just noticed it today. And I prefer to not have the static text before "tag" or "category," but I don't see any easy way to change it, so I suppose I will just have to add a redirect rule as well.

    Please, please don't change our permalink structure willy-nilly.
