I’m panicking a little, so sorry if I haven’t explained well enough.
- I’ve dealt with quite the nightmare of a permalink restructuring experience
- Old permalink= sitename/archives/postid
- desired new= sitename/postname
tried everything it seems. I’ve even dabbled with /?p=$1 (<—–that nonsense!). But now i’m getting some crazy error when i go to my old permalink structure that reads:
Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to 0.0.37.89
Try reloading: 0.0.37.89
and this was supposed to be “redirected”.
I give up. please help.
I used the redirection plugin to redirect all old URL permalinks (/archives/postID) to the new permalink (/postID/postname)
also, the issue appeared to be due to cashing via cloudfare. It’s important to to note that one should put cloudfare in “developer mode” while making site wide changes.
