    Hi,

    I need a plug in wherein the title of my post will show like this:
    http://www.something-big.net/internet-marketing-web-advertising

    and not like this:

    http://www.something-big.net/2/internet-marketing-web-advertising

    Thanks

    Just go to Dashboard >> Settings >> Permalinks
    Select: Custom,specify below
    and put in /%category%/%postname%/
    The final slash / is optional or at least it was when I used this setting. I now use /%post_id%/%postname%/ which looks like what is your current permalinks setting.

    I would not use /%category%/ to start a permalink structure - this queries the db a lot

    from what you want use just /%postname%/ in your custom permalinks

    Thanks Samboll, the info I had must have been from an old WP Docs page...I used to use just /%postname%/ but I read that /%post_id%/%postname%/ was easier on the database than /%postname%/.

    @ mccormicky
    that was true with older versions - and some servers still crap out- but normally it works just fine
