[Plugin: Movable Type and TypePad Importer] Permalink Inconsistency after Moving from Typepad to Wor

  • I recently moved my blog, http://www.pawesome.net from Typepad to WordPress.org. I’ve been impressed with how WP works, along with all the great plugins available, but I’ve hit a wall in terms of permalinks.

    For some reason, when the Movable Type/TypePad Importer ran, the URL provided when you click the title of the post was built from the TITLE entry instead of being built from the BASENAME entry, as it should have been.

    Here’s an example:
    AUTHOR: sonia zjawinski
    TITLE: Crasher Seal: The Next Ani-Meme?
    STATUS: Publish
    ALLOW COMMENTS: 1
    CONVERT BREAKS: wysiwyg
    ALLOW PINGS: 0
    BASENAME: crasher-seal-the-next-animal-meme
    CATEGORY: beyond the yard

    Original Permalink: /2010/01/crasher-seal-the-next-animal-meme/

    WP Permalink: /2010/01/crasher-seal-the-next-ani-meme/

    How do I fix this? Right now I have over 500 broken links because of this… Thanks!
