trouble with permalinks (6 posts)

    I developed a Wp site in a subdirectory, them moved it to root when ready.

    I followed the direction listed at http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress carefully.

    My site is on a windows server so there is no htaccess file, but I made sure to copy the web.config file to root as well.

    Everything seems fine except the permalinks for the Projects post type (portfolio).

    I should mention that I'm using the custom permalink structure of /%category%/%postname%/

    After the site was moved, project posts no longer show the category in the slug, but instead use the words portfolio-view. However, regular posts show the correct slug.

    I found an aritcle that showed this line of code for the web.config file
    <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php?page_id={R:0}" />

    What I had was:
    <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php"/>

    I've tried both an nothing changes.

    Any advice appreciated

    Hi Kerry

    You might have tried this already. But try re-saving your permalinks.

    @kerrya4446 If you still have the old site up and running I would advice using a WordPress site cloning tool to move the site to a new server. Two good ones are WP Clone and Duplicator.



    This makes the transfer process very easy and will only take 10 min or so, usually when using one of these tools I don't run into any errors.
