I mean, I knew that already, but now I have confirmation. I was lamenting my broken permalinks (not so “permanent”, are they?), and he came up with a solution so simple and elegant it’s ridiculous.
Well, “simple” assumes a level of knowledge of php that I have mostly forgotten, and a level of knowledge of WordPress that I’ve never had. But with a few strategically placed functions, a new table in the database, a redirect line in my htaccess file…my permalinks work again! Time for a happy dance!
I have a couple of other tweaks to figure out, but I am finally comfortable and happy enough with my new system to blog about something else one of these days. Oh, and fix my craft pages. (Mumble..mumble..darn php errors..mumble…)
