Very simple. if you want to change your current Permalink structure to /%postname%/, then you can create the same with the help of this free tool.
Free tool created by the Yoast, can generate redirects from your old permalink structure to the permalink/%postname%/ structure.
All you need to do is just fill the necessary information and click ‘Generate Redirect’ to get the redirect code. Now, copy and paste this code in your htacces file.

That’s it. It will automatically redirect your old permalinks to new permalinks without any problem.

  • It only creates the redirect rule when you want to change the permalinks structure to Post Name structure.
  • For rest, it will not work. So, if you want to create redirect rule for any other kind of Permalink then this will not work.
