How to change a page name from "?cat=4" to "?cat=shoes" (4 posts)

    I have a fashion blog and when someone clicks the shoes category, the page url says ?cat=4.

    I want it to say ?cat=shoes.

    Anyone know how to change this?

    Instead of ?cat=shoes, wouldn't it be neat it the url became /shoes/ intead?

    Have you checked out Permalinks yet? That link has details (of course, you can go to Options -> Permalinks in your blog to set them )

    Hello

    In the WP control panel for your blog under "options > permalinks" you can change the URL structure, though it will just end up being http://yoursite.com/shoes/ vs ?cat=shoes which is better for search engines and humans as well.
