My Interesting Files Issue

My other site, My Interesting Files is having problems after transferring from Blogger custom domain to Wordpress selfhosted. All the post already imported to Wordpress, and in Blogger account already set up using FTP publishing, but still the individual post of My Interesting Files was viewed using old Blogger layout.

If you go to the homepage, it will be viewed using new Wordpress theme. But if you click the individual posts that I had imported from Blogger, it will be viewed using old Blogger layout. Not only that. All the link in the Blogger layout, point to the address that does not even exist anymore.

So to prevent this, I had changed the permalink without “.html”. So when the reader clicked the individual post, they will see the post using the new Wordpress theme. I don’t know yet if this going to be permanently or only temporary. Will post again in the future for sure. See the different :

old permalink : /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%.html. eg : http://www.myinterestingfiles.com/2008/03/balance-mobile-concept.html

new permalink : /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%. eg : http://www.myinterestingfiles.com/2008/03/balance-mobile-concept

Does anyone know how to fix this? Even the transfer department from my hosting company who did the transfer and ended up with this problem can not help me to solve this. If any of you ever faced the same problem, please share your experience by leave a comment here or contact me. I really need help.

Update :

To avoid having same content with two different URL, I’ve decided to switch back to my old permalink structure which is using “.html” in the end of the address. If you want to see the different, just go to the homepage and click one old post. You can see the different from here.

Update :

The problem is fixed already. Click here for the detail.

Hi Dunn, I'm a friend of Marzie and Janice, that's how I found you. That's a strange problem you're having! I would recommend you ask Garry Conn at http://www.garryconn.com/
He would probably be able to help you, he's really nice and knows a lot about wordpress. Anyway, it's nice to meet you and have a great day!

Hi Bobby! Thank you for your kind recommendation. I know Garry, but he doesn't know me. Do you think that he is willing to help me?

Bobby said...

The answer is yes. I imported my old blogspot blog into my self-hosted wordpress site and had no problems. He may immediately know what's wrong and it would be worth asking him. That's what he does, he helps people. I do the same thing; however, this situation is a little out of my league right now. I know I could probably fix it, but I don't know how to explain to you how to do that.

You said you could probably fix it. Wanna give it a shot?
