Will wordpress.com allow changing permalink format?

  1. As I understand, currently wordpress.com doesn't let you change your permalink format. This is a bummer, because I have a blog I want to import to wordpress.com, but this blog uses a different permalink format. If I import it to wordpress.com, all external links to my posts will break, which is a deal breaker for me. Are you planning on allowing bloggers to modify their permalink formats? If/when you add this feature, I will move my blog to wordpress.com.

  2. You would have to ask staff during their office hours via the Support button on your dashboard. The forum is basically an all-volunteer operation, and we have no way of answering your question.

  3. Permalinks cannot be altered, sorry.

  4. Why don't you just post some redirects for your old permalinks so that they get transferred properly. This seems like an easy solution to me.

  5. Is your blog currently hosted on your own domain? WordPress.com does provide for domain mapping http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/11/10/domain-mapping/

  6. If this is not the case then Mark our WordPress.com Support Maven has spoken and it is so.

  7. What you would require would be editing access to an .htaccess file which I would imagine will never be allowed on this service. At this time, I don't think staff are entertaining such an idea, sorry!
