Will switching to Fancy Permalinks cause problems?

  • I’m currently using the standard permalink structure.
    I want to use the WP Super Cache plugin to the best of it’s ability and it requires a switch to Fancy Permalinks.
    Is this going to cause problems with my old posts?

    Also, it says:

    You should have mod mime, mod rewrite and fancy permalinks enabled. PHP safe mode should be disabled. If any of those are missing or off you can still use the slower WP-Cache part of the plugin.

    Where are the mod mime, mod rewrite and PHP safe mode check boxes?
    Thanks.

    No, not from a technical standpoint. Now, if you have an existing site with a high Google Page Rank, or such, well, that’s a different story.

    Where are the mod mime, mod rewrite and PHP safe mode check boxes?

    These are server settings, which, unless you’re running your own web server, are controlled by your webhost. Mod_rewrite and mod_mime are pretty much core Apache modules, so I’d expect those to be enabled on most webhosts.

    Just install the plugin and see if your site serves static pages after going to the same post twice. If the plugin works, then no problems.

    Thanks scribbler.

    I’ll give it a shot.
