Permalinks are the permanent URLs to your individual weblog posts, as well as categories and other lists of weblog postings. A permalink is what another weblogger will use to link to your article (or section), or how you might send a link to your story in an e-mail message.
Selecting permalink structure
1. Open WordPress admin panel
2. Go to Settings>Permalinks
You can choose one of the “common” structures or enter your own in the “Custom structure” field using the structure tags
Note: You never, ever put your site url in the permalinks slot. You must use one of the structure tags, or a combination of tags only.
- The year of the post, four digits, for example 2004
- Month of the year, for example 05
- Day of the month, for example 28
- Hour of the day, for example 15
- Minute of the hour, for example 43
- Second of the minute, for example 33
- The unique ID # of the post, for example 423
- A sanitized version of the title of the post (post slug field on Edit Post/Page panel).
- A sanitized version of the category name (category slug field on New/Edit Category panel). Nested sub-categories appear as nested directories in the URI.
- A sanitized version of the tag name (tag slug field on New/Edit Tag panel).
- A sanitized version of the author name.
Note: For performance reasons, it is not a good idea to start your permalink structure with the category, tag, author, or postname fields.
