Support » Fixing WordPress » Switching Permalink Structure – SE Effects?

  • jbbrwcky


    I am switching to a permalink structure after a long time without one. Will this affect my search engine rankings/listings adversely? Will it help me in the search engines? What about PR, any effect there?

    Yes it will help you a lot.
    Permalink structure is one of wordpress best features.

    About your PR, forget it. You will get back and it will be better more than ever.

    There will be a PR update soon. If you want to go for the permalinks, just it now. There is no harm but all benefits with the permalinks.

    Go ahead and do it.



    By the way, what plugin do you use to post photos in your blog? can you link to the full size image too?



    Ok thanks, I’ll get it done then. May as well.

    I don’t use a plugin, I just upload ’em and style them in the post.



    can you tell me how you style them?

    If I want to post a thumbnail, I am just inserting it in a new line. Now how do I post a thumbnail in the left or right of the content?

    any direct plugins to do that?



    I like to use Thomas Montague’s LMB-Box FilePress. What’s neat about it is that you can style it however you wish as he’s wrapped the code in a classes alignleft, alignright and aligncenter. And it’s not restricted to images; you can upload other kinds of files as well (e.g., zip, pdf, doc, wpd, etc.) — just be sure you specify those file extensions in Options (Miscellaneous).

    Link to plugin is here:

    So you can see the effect, check out my husband’s site, with the uploaded thumbnail styled, here:
