Easy Guide to WordPress Permalink Settings

Hello guys! Welcome you to a new section of my tutorial on WordPress. In this tutorial guide, i will be discussing about the WordPress Permalink Settings.

The Permalink is a permanent link to a particular blog post or category. It makes it possible to be able to change the default permalink structure. These settings are used in adding permalinks to your posts in WordPress.

Following are the steps to access  the permalink settings -

Step 1 - Click on the Settings → Permalink option.

Step 2 - When you click on the Permalink option, the Permalink page appears as shown below.

Following below are the settings you can make on this page-

  • Common settings - Check any of the Check box to choose your permalink structure for your site.
    • Default - It sets the default URL structure.
    • Day and name - It sets URL structure according to the date and name in your posts.
    • Month and name - It sets the URL structure of your site according the month and name in your posts.
    • Numeric - It sets numbers in the URL structure in your posts.
    • Post name - It sets post name in URL structure in your posts.
    • Custom Structure - It sets the URL structure of your choice by writing the desired name into the the given text box.
  • Optional - These are optional settings. You can add custom struture for main category or tag URL. If your text box is empty, default settings is used. Here we have two options -
    • Category Based - Adds custom prefix for your category URL.
