Restoring lost FB likes after changing the WP permalink?

Postby nikonista » 4 years ago


I have searched the web on this and have found limited feedback.

I have recently changed to WP Socializer and have stopped using my old plugin and in the process have lost all the fb likes and also some comments too. I am aware that this might be irreversible but if anyone has any comments that would be great.

In the proces of installing the new plugin, I was changing my permalink around, at the time I didn't know I would lose all the likes so I am not fully sure what different things I did, but this is what I remember:

The "Custom Structure" button was selected, with my custom blog link in it: "http://thecompasswithin.com/blog" and I had the "/%postname%/" in that field. (this had been set up in the past by someone who helped me put the website/blog together. So I was just playing around with it to see what it does.
Once I did something it changed to the button: "Post name" with the unchangeable link: "http://thecompasswithin.com/blog/sample-post/"
I've tried changing it to custom but every time I would save it, it would just go to the new setting..

In the meantime, I started getting new likes on new blog posts... So, does anyone know if it's possible to "find", somehow "integrate" and a "combine" all the likes together, or am I being overly optimistic?

This is the blog in case it helps.
Thanks for comments!
