    Changing WP Permalink Structure - Are There Auto Redirect Options?

    Hopefully the title was self explanatory but just in case...

    I want to change the permalink structure of my WordPress blog, but that will cause a lot of 404 errors.

    Is there a plug-in for wordpress that would automatically create 301 redirects when the permalink structure is changed? Or is there another route where I wouldn't have to manually enter ~500 redirects?

    Also, without a plugin, you could define a mod_rewrite rule in your .htaccess file that matches the old URL pattern and redirects to the new URL pattern.

    Thank you Dan, I'll try that plug-in!

    And Dan, I thank you as well for that tip.
