Permalinks Structure for Posts

Managing individual post URLs, changing global permalink structure for posts

Permalinks are the permanent URLs to individual pages and blog posts, as well as your category and tag archives. A permalink is the web address used to link to your content.

Changing individual post URL

You can easily change URL Slugs for Blog Posts, Pages, or Custom Post Types.

For this purpose, you can open any post you want to change the link for and change the URL slug as shown:

You can use alpha-numeric characters and dashes in the slugs.

For a more SEO-friendly URL, make sure you choose a slug that contains keywords people would normally use to search for content.

Changing global URL structure for posts

The  Settings -> Permalinks page allows you to choose the default permalink structure. You can choose from common settings or create custom URL structures. Click on the Save Changes button at the bottom of the screen for new settings to apply.

By default, WordPress uses web URLs with a day and name format. However, WordPress offers the option to create a custom URL structure for permalinks and archives. This can improve the aesthetics, usability, and forward compatibility of the website links.

Check one of the radio buttons corresponding to the correct Permalink Structure for your blog.

Click the Save Changes button to ensure any changes you have made to the Settings area are saved to your database. A confirmation text box will appear at the top of the page confirming the settings have been saved.
