The permalink structure of this blog has been changed following advice from Sudar. Originally the permalink structure was /archives/%post_id%. Now I have changed to /%category%/%postname%.
I was quiet apprehensive to change at first, coz, I didn’t want the links to be broken and an ugly 404 – Page not found error to be displayed. There is a plugin from Dean Lee site.
It makes the migration hazzle free. In the PermalinksMigration plugin setttings page set the old permalink structure. In the Permalinks settings page, set the new permalink structure and it is done.
There is one thing I’m still concerned about. On the Codex page, it is instructed to avoid using /%category%/%postname%/, stating performance reasons. But this structure looks more elegant. Can anyone give me more insight into this?
