    I've had a blog for about 2 years and just learned that the format should be:

    website/%title%

    Right now it's website/%date%/%title%, so I want to change the old article's permalinks to the one above.

    However, I'm not too confident on using this plugin that yoast suggested:
    urbangiraffe plugin redirection - it doesn't allow me to give the actual link.

    Can anyone please give me which settings I should use so I won't get broken links once I change the permalinks. thanks in advance!

    I recently changed several of my blogs permalink structure, what you really need to do is make sure that you have a 301 redirect on all the old links, their are plugins that you can do this with, if you use platinum seo it will do this automatically. Best of luck :)

    Will this platinum seo work on websites or just blogs?

    Any help would be appreciated...

    Thanks a million,

    And Have A Blessed One...
