    Hello all...

    been playing with permalinks...i want them (and if possible my URL) to read
    http://www.example.com/scams-targeting-writers/writer-beware
    with scams-targeting-writers being the category and writer-beware the article name...
    if i use
    /%post-name%/
    the URL is http://www.example.com/category/scams-targeting-writers
    which is the category and not the article..and the permalink is
    Permalink: http://www.example.com/%post-name%/
    if I use
    /%category%/%post-name%/
    the URL is the same as above
    http://www.barbaradoyen.com/category/scams-targeting-writers/
    and the permalink is Permalink: http://www.example.com/scams-targeting-writers/%post-name%/
    how can i get the URL (if possible) or at the very least the permalink to be http://www.example.com/scams-targeting-writers/writer-beware?
    or is this not a permalinks issue but a categories one?

    thanks in advance - you guys rock!

    hi

    the symbol for postname is %postname% NOT %post-name%

    change it and you will have different results
