    If those links are hard coded in your posts, you may need to update them in your database.

    I would do a search and replace of the links in the wp_post.

    One more thing @imikedesigns, I’m not sure that the .html extension works on pages.
    You might need a plugin like this one –

    But it’s very old. I would reconsider adding the .html personally.
    I’m not sure there’s any benefit.

    Thanks for the reply. But I can’t think of a way to search and replace them because they are all different links. It would bascially be a manual update of 1200 links at that point. Im hoping this can be done with .htaccess or or an add_rewrite_rule. Im just unsure of the regex to use.

    Thanks Christine. Reading your post, I realized youre right. There is no reason to use .html. But, I still had .html hardcoded links as well. So, I removed .html from my permalink structure added

    # Rewrite .html to postname/
    RedirectMatch 301  ^/([^/]+)/([^/.]+)\.html$ /$1/$2/
    RedirectMatch 301  ^/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/([^/.]+)\.html$ /$1/$2/$3/

    to my .htaccess to redirect those hardcoded .html links to /category/postname structure links. Works great.
