Move TypePad blog to WordPress, what about URL?

    I am planning to migrate a rather popular blog (150,000 pageviews per month) from TypePad to WordPress. However, while importing all my previous posts I noticed that this gives a problem with the URL’s.

    When my TypePad URL is: http://www.xxx.com/2009/10/damn-you-typepad.html

    In WordPress this becomes: http://www.xxx.com/2009/10/08/damn-you-typepad/

    So WordPress adds the day and does not use the html extension.

    Is there any way to fix this? Considering the many incoming links I have to keep the same URL’s if not my site is dead of course.

    Thanks a lot

    You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    Um, FYI this looks like it’s specific to WordPress.ORG and doesn’t work for WordPress.COM which is what’s supported in this forum. Can you clarify that it works for WordPress.com?
