[resolved] Permalinks problem (6 posts)

    I have created a custom permalink structure as follows: /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/ to improve SEO. I have saved this structure and everything works fine.

    I now decided to install the UTW plugin which works fine also

    I then installed the Tag Cloud Widget for UTW which installs fine and puts my tags in a cloud however when i click on a link it is not using my permalink structure of /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/ to give me SEF links and is instead using the old style http://blog.mcdermotts.org.uk/index.php?tag=blackboard

    When i click on post from my home my permalink structure works fine just not from the Tag cloud.

    How do i configure my tag cloud to use the same permalink structure ?

    My Blog can be found here Blog.McDermotts

    Many thanks

    Here's a hint: Manage -> Tags.
    Look at those very top options. :-)

    Here's a correction!

    Options -> Tags (not Manage). Apologies.

    Hi

    Im sorry I must be missing something I've tried ticking the first option (Use url rewriting for local tag urls (/tag/tag instead of index.php?tag=tag) )

    but that doesnt as now get http://blog.mcdermotts.org.ukblog/ when i click on a tag with the word blog

    I have tried copying my permalink structure in the Base url field but then just get http://blog.mcdermotts.org.uk/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/blog for tag with word blog

    I'm clearly doing something wrong but dont know what it is

    Can you tell me what to put in that top section

    thanks for your help

    For me,I just checked the top box. For the base url I have "/tag/" (without quotes).
