Sub-categories vs. existing links

    Maybe this is a support question & I can’t find it, so any direction would be appreciated!

    I have several recent posts blogging a trip under a category called “sailing” on my blog & I would like to group them all together under one heading (sub-category “BVI Fall ’09 Sailing”) which would then still be under the “sailing” parent category. But if I were to do this, what happens to all the links I’ve posted (on various forums and membership groups) that don’t include a subcategory? Will all the links which are now generating traffic to my blog become inaccurate and therefore inactive?

    It seems that I needed to create a subcategory first and then stick it into a category and that it’s not possible to do it the other way around without messing up the links I’ve given out (which brought my blog from a couple dozen views a day to several thousand, so I DON’T want to mess them up!)

    Thanks for any help!

    The blog I need help with is



    We can’t answer questions without a link to your blog, starting with http.


    No wonder I can’t figure these things out myself…sorry.

    It’s and the category link is




    I am not 100000% sure, but I believe that BOTH the category links and the subcategory links will work; in other words, you won’t screw yourself up.

    What you might want to do, to be 1000000000000% sure, is just use a TAG instead of a subcategory.


    Thank you! It would be a shame to go back to a few page views a day so that’s probably the safe way to go!

    With much gratitude,
    -k :)
