WordPress Start: 5. Update URL / Permalink

By default the URL for the post is of the form: <domain name>/<year/<month>/<day>/<post title>

This display may not be the most attractive if you want your post still of interest in 5 or 10 years. The date in that case would suggest that the contain may not be relevant anymore.

To change this, you need to go in Settings and select Permalinks.
