Cruft-Free URIs in WP 1.0

Posted January 8, 2004 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Documentation.

There has been some talk of cruft-free URIs again of late, so I thought I would post step-by-step directions for WordPress 1.0. Pay close attention, this will be very difficult.

  1. Login. Click “Options”. Click “Permalinks”.
  2. Enter your permalink structure into the box. I like the default one given, /archives/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/.
  3. Copy and paste the code it gives you into your .htaccess file.

If you made it this far, you should know that we recognize this process is overly complicated, and we are working to eliminate Step 3 in the future.

Update: Mark Pilgrim has some instructions for Movable Type users.
