permalinks redirect?

  • I would like to change one of my old permalinks, do I need to add a 301 redirect plugin or does wordpress do it automatically now?

    Thanks!

  • no, you will need to do it yourself. I dont know about any plugin..

    WordPress will not do 301 redirection for old URLs. You will need to do it either from .htaccess or via plugin (if there is any such plugin available).

    Here is a simple example of how to manually use a 301 redirect:

    redirect 301 /old/old http://domain.com/new/new

    And let’s say you want to change the name of a category:

    redirect 301 /old/ http://domain.com/new/
