Custom URLs (5 posts)

    I'm wondering if there's a way, a plugin, to convert a lengthy URL (because of multi level child pages) to a simple, easy-to-remember URL.
    Example:

    http://www.mywebsite.com/produce/fruit/apples/macintosh

    to

    http://www.mywebsite.com/macintosh

    quick anwswer
    settings -> permalinks
    set custom format, and paste: /%postname%/
    you'll have domain.com/post-name

    you can use also /%postname%/.html which look like this
    domain.com/post-name.html

    regards

    Thanks K@ri. But that setting works for Posts, and does not affect Pages. I need a way to shorted Page URLs. But the custom-permalinks plugin looks like something that would work.
