Permalinks (URLs)

Most users prefer to have their URLs look like http://yourwebsite/sample-post/ vs the WordPress default which is http://yourwebsite/?p=123. To make this change head to SettingsPermalinks and select an option from the list provided there.

Settings > Permalinks
Setup your URL structure from Settings > Permalinks.

Post name is often used but the choice is up to you. Most hosting environments have no problem allowing this setup.

Post name
Post name is a popular permalink setting.

In the event you run into problems, you’ll need to check that your server allows mod_rewrite. This is something you can check with your hosting company.
