Making your urls pretty in WordPress
So, you’ve just started a new WordPress site. You’ve added categories for your blog posts but the when you visit them, the link is something like: http://example.com/2018/01/10/this-is-a-post.
You can change how links look in WordPress thanks to the permalinks functions within the admin panel.
In your WordPress admin panel click Settings > Permalinks. You’ll then see the following screen:
If you check Custom Structure, you change how your permalinks look. Ours are set to /%category%/%postname%/ which enables us to use URL’s like: http://example.com/wordpress/new-post.
We hope this helps. It definitely makes a difference to the structure of your website.
