When visitors of your site come to a bogus page address, they are normally shown a 404 error page. The page just says content does not exist and that’s it. Not very useful! Especially if the content does exist, and you only changed the permalink structure. So the users clicking on old links can not reach the page at the new address, which is bad for pagerank, social media sites and other link sources you can’t alter.

To check that e-mail is working, login to your WordPress installation at make sure your user has an email setup correctly. Then logout, enter username and hit Lost password. An message should arrive to the user’s e-mail address with instructions to change password. Don’t follow them if you have no plans to change password. We did it only to make sure e-mail is working.

A serious blogger edits and rewrites his post vigorously. By default, WordPress saves all this revisions, consuming a lot of space. You can see revisions when opening posts in dashboard.
