I’m migrating a client from WP e-commerce and need to preserve the existing permalinks as the client has put a lot of effort into getting a high Google ranking. Obviously changing the permalinks would create problems and possibly cause them to lose their rank.
The URL structure I need is: /store/%PRODUCT_CATEGORY%/%PRODUCT%/
I’ve been successful in getting the URL structure I need by changing the ‘Shop’ page slug to ‘store’ and modifying the Permalink settings in WooCommerce but am now getting a 404 Error on every product page.
The URLs/permalinks display/work correctly on the shop page and going to the category pages. However any attempt to access the product via the /store/%PRODUCT_CATEGORY%/%PRODUCT%/ URL results in a 404 error.
I’ve verified that the individual products permalink is correct; at least that it displays as needed on the product edit page. But can’t figure out the 404 error.
This is a development site with a fresh install of WP 3.4.2 and the only plugins installed are WooCommerce 184.108.40.206 and Regenerate Thumbnails 2.2.3
Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated!
