I started a new blog here blog.advancedbrain.com
You will see there are two posts there. When I launched with the first post, I had the permalinks set to the default "?p=15" So the first post went out and we got a lot of social engagement which boosted all the social numbers below that post.
Then, before launching the second post, I changed the permalinks to the option with the post title in the url. I need to keep with that naming structure going forward.
The problem is, switching the naming loses all the social stats on that first post. If I switch the permalinks back to default, the stats come back. But I can't do that. So my question is, is there a way to hack it so just that first post uses the default permalink and all the rest going forward use the one I have set it to now?
