    I am using a single post (via plug-in "WP Events Calendar") to produce a month-to-month calendar. I wish to create permalinks for SEO purposes and need some assistance and direction on how to create the structure.

    Here is a sample of my URL and Query String to get my Calendar's Post to work the way I designed it:

    I wish to create a permalink structure as follows:

    Is this possible to do? If so, how?

    Thanks.

    Yes you can do it manually. However I can help you only by giving steps for the manual steps.

    The steps are:-

    1) Login to your WP admin panel.

    2) In the left sidebar, click on Settings tab and then on Permanent Links.

    3) In the Custom url space, just add %month% where ever you want.

    But won't that change it for all posts? I really only want to do this for 1 post, not all.

    Currently my "Custom Structure" is set to --> /%category%/%postname%/

    I want to append %year%/%month%/ to it but only for Post ID #18
    And I need the %year% to interpret my query string &cy value and the %month% to interpret my ?cm value.

    Is that possible?

    Hmmm I'm not sure if it's possible to change the permalink for only one PostID.

    Something to mention just incase it can help you. Your Custom Strucutre starting with Category is not really reccomended. The Codex says

    "Starting Permalinks with %category% is strongly not recommended for performance reasons."
    Here's the link: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Structure_Tags

    If it works for you then, great! I just know we recently had a lot of headache's when a site of ours got much larger and would hate for anyone else to have to go through it based on the Permalink. Hope all goes well.
