I never had an issue with the permalinks.
Lets make something clear though:
1) Your permalinks will change. The structure any way. Article section will no longer be articles… they will be post. Same goes for products.
2) You can do a sitewide redirect to correct those issues.
3) I have a pr3 and pr2 on my sites and did not drop in rank.
Regarding your comment …
3) … and did not drop in rank.
can you be please explain exactly how you did not dropped in rank? That is, how exactly did you move from Ver 7 to the new V 8 without destroying the permalinks?
We have a Google pr1 in our DirectoryPress V 7.1.4 directory and for a long time we have refrained to upgrade to the newest Ver 8 due to the permalinks issue. We don’t want to destroy our page rank. So please, if possible, open a new thread and explain how exactly you did it. This is the first time we hear that someone upgraded without affecting page rank.
We will appreciate it a lot. Thanks!
My page rank drop was short lived and after a few months is back around the same.
However that was the least of my problems. Upgrading is harder than it looks and even now months later my site is only running at 75%.
I still have one 7.1.4 site but I think their days are numbered every time there is a wp upgrade.
Hi, This message still apear even if I modifie my permalink to default : “Please set your WordPress permalinks to ‘default’ before performing any transfers. ” What should I do ? Thanks
