I have some posts that have turned out so useful that I want them as a permanent fixture on the site...their own Page, not a post.
The usual answer seems to be "copy the old info and paste it into a new Page". But this has some liabilities.
When you change the name of a post or page, people following links to the old URL are automatically redirected to the new one.
But if you copy and paste the post into a new page, the old post either stays, people following old links sent to the outdated version, or you delete it, breaking existing links, or you put some lame text telling them it's been moved, and make them follow a link to the new page.
Likewise, I'm concerned that having the old post/new page dilemma will confuse spiders, causing google and friends to degrade the ranking of the new page, as it's duplicate data. If it were a "moved page" auto-redirect like when you change a page or post's name, that would not be a factor.
This also makes the listing in the RSS feed confusing, if the post is recent enough to be included there.
The blog I need help with is butnowyouknow.wordpress.com.
