    Hello,

    I created a few weeks ago an blog post:
    Title: So you swim right
    URL: mysite.com/so-you-swim-right

    Now I want to change my title and url to this:
    Title: How to swim right
    URL mysite.com/how-to-swim-right

    How do I do this right? Can I just change title and permalink in wordpress and i'm fine (seo wise)?

    It worked perfectly.

    No need to do a 301 it redirect automatically if I click an old link
