Changing category name in the status bar (7 posts)

    Hey there! Is it possible to change a displayable category id in the status bar (at the bottom of the browser page) to a name? For example: my category name is Sports, and when i hover on the link i want that my category name would stay Sports in the status bar, but wouldn't be, for example http://localhost/wp/?cat=1 .

    Maybe it's a dumb question, but I'm new in wordpress

    Thank you for your reply. No I'm not using permalinks, didn't know this kind of stuff exist :). Maybe you can tell me how to use them for my prob? I mean, where to put the code etc.. I'm kinda lost here

    Go to wp-admin > Settings > Permalinks and choose a permalink structure other than default: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Choosing_your_permalink_structure

    And see if your urls are "pretty" and working on the front end of your website.

    After this redirect your old urls to the new ones using a plugin:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/redirection/

    Or with this tool:

    Okay, the "pretty" links are working fine, but I'm having trouble redirecting URL's with this tool [http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/redirection/] .

    If my category is Sports (by id of 1 )do i have to fill in this form like this?

    Sourcle Url: http://localhost/wp/?cat=1
    Target URL: http://localhost/wp/category/Sports/

    I'm sorry, but I've never used that plugin before. Maybe create a new topic for that: http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/redirection#postform
