Support » Fixing WordPress » WP 2.0 broke my permalink structure

    In WordPress 1.5, I had the permalink structure /articles/%postname%/ and a Page with a slug of ‘articles’ which acted as the Blix theme’s archives page. i.e. http://relativestate.net/articles/ showed a list of articles, and http://relativestate.net/articles/some-article/ was how you would access it.

    In 2.0, this no longer works. The ‘articles’ page now conflicts with the post permalinks. http://relativestate.net/articles/some-article/ now 404s. This is strange because the permalink structure /articles/old/%postname%/ works…

    Is there anything I can do to use my old URLs again?

    (If you go to the site now, it will appear to work because I changed the articles Page’s slug to ‘archives’ so things would not break in the interim.)
