[resolved] change name of url (6 posts)

    I have the following sub-domains:
    ceconn.com/canwetalk;
    ceconn.com/saycheese;
    ceconn.com/whatsmellssogood

    I would like to change the names of sub-domains to read:
    ceconn.com/can-we-talk;
    ceconn.com/say-cheese;
    ceconn.com/what-smells-so-good

    My reason? I've been told that for better placement, my keywords should be in the url and that it should have the dash or underscore so that the search engines can find them.

    I'd like to do this without screwing everything up. Can you guide me, please?

    If you are saying you would like to move WordPress from one domain/subdomain to another, then Moving WordPress should help you.

    Gee, I never thought of it as moving. You think the name change constitutes moving?

    MichealH is right if you are renaming "3 seperate installs of wordpress" If you are just changing the name of a "page" or "post" then in the admin panel for the pages or posts gust change the name of the "Slug"

    I guess that works for catigories too.
