    I do not want to remove the dates!

    I transfered my old website and I’m re-adding some posts, that already have links to the old urls. So I NEED the url to be “.com/2012/12/name”
    But even when I change the publish date to be back in time, the PERMALINK stays at 2017 no matter what I’ve tried.

    How do I customize permalinks on what is essentially a new post. And no, I do not want to redirect. I just want the correct permalinks.

    Hi there,

    There are no options to change permalinks for WordPress.com sites.

    Permalink options are only available with the self-hosted version of WordPress(.org)

    To learn about the differences between the two versions of WordPress (.com vs.org), please see this guide.

    If you need support for a self-hosted site, please try posting your question in the WordPress.org support forums.

    I have a selfhosted website. How do I control my permalinks. I’m not looking to change them after. I want to be able to have the date be a time before now, in the permalink.

    We provide support only for wordpress.COM hosted sites as they are the only ones on our servers. That site is not on our servers and you are posting to the wrong support forum to get support for it.

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Our support docs do not apply to
    (1) local installs of wordpress.ORG software on your own server or
    (2) wordpress.ORG software installs on paid hosting, and we do not provide support for them at wordpress.COM.
    (3) sites linked to wordpress.COM accounts with the Jetpack plugin so they display on the My Sites wordpress.com account page.

    re: wordpress.org support
    The wordpress.ORG support forum is at http://wordpress.org/support. The wordpress.ORG login link is here https://login.wordpress.org/ If you do not have an account yet then click Create an account https://login.wordpress.org/register/ and if you have lost an account password click Lost password? https://login.wordpress.org/lostpassword/
    WordPress.org support docs are at https://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page
    See also https://apps.wordpress.org/support/ for app support.

    re: Jetpack support
    Some Jetpack solutions are here http://jetpack.com/support/
    Others are in the Jetpack support forum at WordPress.org
    http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/jetpack
    However, if help cannot be found at either one then they can file a Jetpack support ticket here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/?jetpack=needs-service
