8 years, 3 months ago
does wordpress 2.7 automatically redirect old slugs to new slugs when you change them?
how do you mean re-direct?
if you update your permalinks – then yes it automatically resets everything.
got the answer by doing the experiment…
so for example you made a post yesterday and forgot to change the slug and you published it already..
then you try to change the slug to a new one the next day, somebody linked to the old slug and it gets accessed it will be redirected to the new one.
after changing to the new slug:
old-slug (gets redirected to the) new-slug
no need for a plugin
