The WordPress team released their latest offering of their fantastic blogging platform yesterday, so I took the opportunity to upgrade our system.
I’ve also taken the opportunity to change our permalink structure as well to the following SEO friendly URL type:
To ensure that all our old permalinks redirect with a 301 to the correct post and our search engine ranking have been maintained, I’ve used a plugin by Dean Lee which was very simple to use. There are several others out there that you could try out if you want to do the same thing. The permalink structure I’ve taken up is /%postname%/ and if you’re interested in other combinations for updating your URLs, check the WordPress codex for the correct syntax.
