Permalink Structure Change - Help Needed (1 post)

    Hi there,

    I, not so long ago, changed my permalink structure from the 'day and name' format to /%postname%/

    so from http://samplesite.com/2010/11/12/sample-post
    to http://samplesite.com/sample-post

    I added this to my .htaccess file:

    RedirectMatch 301 ^/([0-9]{4})/([0-9]{2})/([0-9]{2})/(.*)$ http://samplesite.com/$4

    I would like to now change my current permalink structure to /%category%/%postname%/

    So here are my questions:

    1. How would I get about doing this?
    2. How do I take into account my previous 301 redirects? Or do I even have to?
    3. Is this change even recommended?
    4. Will there be any resulting issues?
