What happens if I change category slug in wordpress?

  • # December 17, 2011 at 5:54 pm

    Suppose I have normal article links as domain.com/category-name-1/name-of-article/ and if I rename that category so to category-name-2, will WP handle the 301 redirects?

    Is there any impact I should be worried about? The search rankings? The 404 pages? Automatic redirects?

    i cant say if it does that off the top of my head, but you could just do a wild card 301 redirect for the OLD cat name to the new cat name if need be..

    and if you have links indexed with the old cat name then theyll all not work.. unless of course you have a redirect for it.. thats my 2 cents.
