    WP has been doing this automatically for me when I change the post slug. I guess it doesn't do the same when it's the date.....

    But there's an easy solution. Edit .htaccess and add this

    Redirect 301 /2011/08/09/example-more/ /2008/07/10/example-more/

    Or vice versa, the one on the right is the target. HTH.

    I think you can do this:

    - create a new post page BACKDATED to the date you want to show in the URL and with the slug like in the original page
    - copy all the content from the original page
    - publish the new page and 301 redirect the original page to it

    W130SN advice is recommendable, i think changing and back dating your new post will do the tricks, or if you're a WP hardcored user, you can go through the htaccess.
