Question Change URL of already created blog post

Hi everyone,

I want to change one of the URLs from one of my blog posts. I know that I have to make a redirect from the old URL to the new one and I was planning on using the plugin "Redirection" but I was wondering if it is enough to just redirect the old URL to the new one using the tool "Redirection" or if I also have to make a change within the URL of the blog post itself (permalink of the post)? I thought I might ask for help here first before I try things out and all the link juice that I previously got from the old URL will be gone.

Hope it is understandable what I mean. I greatly appreciate any help.

its OK as long as you are using 301 redirects.

Instead of adding to the load time of the site by using a plugin I would use the .htaccess file to add the 301 permanent redirect. This way you are in control instead of relying on a plugin that may disappear one day.... What a mess you would have if it did.
