I'm thinking of converting my existing WP.org blog to a WP.com blog and I have a question about permalinks. Note that if I do convert from WP.org to WP.com, I will purchase the custom domain option so that I can keep my existing domain name/URL.
On my WP.org blog, the permalink structure is simply the post name. However, in WP.com I don't see a way to set up permalinks so that they are the post name. Is there a way to do this so that links to existing posts will continue to work? If not, is there a way within WP.com to set up redirects so that the old links will work?
