WordPress PermaLink Structure (1 post)

    Hello. I recently worked on a redesign of an old established site. We made a self hosted wordprerss site.

    As this was an established site there were several links pointing to it from other sites and on documentation.

    for example: domainname.com/pt
    The structure of the site changed now that we are using wordpress.

    So the new link to that page is:

    domainname.com/something/something/pt

    When I type in domainname.com/pt it searches for the pt and actually pulls up the correct page.

    Is this a fluke or will this continue with other pages?

    like: donainname.com/woop
    would recognize:
    domainname.com/something/something/woop

    and so on?

    Is there any documentation that describes this behavior? If it is not a fluke it will be really easy to create redirects by changing the page names rather than actually creating redirects...
