WordPress: How to Modify Permalinks

Permanlinks are the unique URLs associated to each of your individual pages and blog posts. Here you will learn how to modify your Permalink to a more custom URL. Learn more about permalinks by visiting WordPress.org.

How to Change the Full WordPress Permalink

WordPress permalinks consist of a base (same throughout your entire WordPress website) and a suffix (unique for each page). You can modify permalink suffixes from inside of the WordPress Dashboard. Modifying your website's base permalink will require you to make manual modifications inside of your website's database.

  • Want to learn how to modify the base permalink? Visit WordPress.org to find out more.

Permalink Example
http://www.your-domain.com/sample-page/
Permalink "Base" Permalink "Suffix"
http://www.your-domain.com/ sample-page/

Important: You will need to update your base permalink if you plan on changing your domain pointers and file directory structure (for example, changing "http://www.your-domain.com/subdirectory" into just "http://www.your-domain.com/").

  3. Go to Permalinks.
  4. Use the interface provided to modify your permalinks as desired.
