    no!!!

    you have to create redirects. actually it is better to use the permailnk structure from wordpress – then the urls have the title inside, not the post id.

    Thank you for the reply.

    I always use permalinks, but sadly the joomla coder didnt active them on his build, so the search engines have indexed the whole site with that ugly url above.

    I was planning to use redirects to route the bad URL and regex it to a wordpress url, which let me not loose any rankings and wordpress would rewrite site.com/?p=68 to site.com/page-name.

    This will only work if the joomla article ID and wordpress post ID are the same though.

    Unless you know how to handle it better?

    Thanks again!

    Hi, i have the same problem.
    Our joomla links have all the post ID in the URL.
    It should be a way to keep the post ID’s after migrating to WP.

    If many people are interested of keeping SEO by redirecting the old Joomla URLs to the new WordPress URLs, I can take some time to develop such a feature in my plugin fg-joomla-to-wordpress. But this will be a premium version (not free) as it requires some extra work.
    Please tell me if you are interested.
