Importing from TypePad: How to not break old URL's?

  1. I can't find the answer to this anywhere. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I'm about to import a blog of mine from TypePad to WordPress.com. However my concern is breaking the URL's for all my old blog posts being that in TypePad they are formatted like this */year/month/post-title.html and in WordPress.com like this /year/month/day/post-title.

    Being that I can't change Permalink structure in WordPress.com, does it automatically handle this?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Cheers.

  2. Here you are. WordPress should handle the transfer automatically.

  3. Thanks. I think they need to put a comment in this support document stating that URL's won't be broken.

    Cheers.
