After upgrading to 2.3 I’ve run into a problem related to the new canonical redirect functionality. I have permalinks set to ‘pretty’, but before 2.3 I was using a specific ugly URL to display posts from a specific cateogory from specific months.
For example I used:
The new canonical rewriting forwards that to /category/categoryname.
If I reverse the query arguments (/index.php?m=200701&cat=1), it forwards to /2007/01.
Can someone tell me what the ‘pretty’ equivalent of my ugly links would be?
I’ve tried ‘/2007/01/category/categoryname’ and ‘/category/categoryname/2007/01’ and ‘/category/2007/01/categoryname’ to no avail. I’ve also tried variations of ‘/category/categoryname?m=200701’ and ‘/2007/01?cat=1’ with similar results.
For now I’ve used the plugin to disable the new canonical functionality, but I hate to use those kinds of band-aids.
