Need to preserve permalinks moving from blogger to wordpress

  • Well, it looks like you have almost resolved it as your wordpress links look almost like your blogger links now. You should reply back with what you did to make the permalinks the same as this is a frequent question.

    Hello, after reading your problem I found two things that you can do, but one other that I’m not sure what to do.

    Here’s what I know.

    You can change the directory structure so they become something like

    http://spyware-free.us/2007/09/title-of-post/.

    This is done using Permalinks, here’s an entire tutorial in the Codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks

    However, the problem is that since you installed wordpress in a directory, what you can have is

    http://spyware-free.us/wordpress/2007/09/title-of-post/ (with additional /wordpress/)

    instead of

    http://spyware-free.us/2007/09/title-of-post/.

    I am not sure if there is any .htacess magic that can resolve this problem, so we can only hope that somebody else in the forum can help.

    The next step, assuming the above problem is solved, is to modify the URL a little bit more so they become

    http://spyware-free.us/wordpress/2007/09/title-of-post.html`

    instead of

    http://spyware-free.us/2007/09/title-of-post/

    Here you can find another tutorial on how to add the “.html” into the permalink: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Having_your_posts_end_in_.html

    I hope this can help, even if it’s missing one step.
