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.

Wordpress Start Package

By default, Day and name is selected.

Wordpress Start Package

Change the selection to Post name and click on Save Changes.

A temporary box appears at the top to confirm that the change was saved.
