Tumblr to WordPress: Permalinks go wrong (3 posts)

    Hi All,

    I recently moved my tumblr blog to a clean wordpress installation with the tumblr to wordpress this export tool: http://haochen.me/tumblr/
    Everything went fine, except my permalinks, they are still messed up. The only way to change them is go in every post, change the permalink manually and save the blogpost.
    I already went to settings > permalinks and changed it from numbers to: date > post title. But the wont update.

    There are over a 100 posts at my blog so doing them all manually is just not possible. Is there a way to solve this?

    This is the url to my blog: http://www.jonassmets.com the first 2 posts are changed manually, so those permalinks are fine. The rest is still messed up.

    Hope to find a solution here.

    You will have to do a search and replace of your old url's on your database. make a backup of your database first when you do this. try this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search-regex/
