[resolved] Question about Permalink Setting & WordPress by Yoast Plugin (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm setting up the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin. It's giving me the following warning:

    "You do not have your postname in the URL of your posts and pages, it is highly recommended that you do. Consider setting your permalink structure to /%postname%/." And gave me "Ignore" and a "Fix It" buttons. Which option do I choose?

    In Settings-->Permalinks, I had Custom Structures set to: /%post_name%/
    (note the "_")

    Do I need to change /%post_name%/, so that it's the same as the plugins suggestion? If I change it will there be any problems?

    Thank you.

    have you ever changed the permalinks before ?

    /%post_name%/ this is correct to make the plugin work but im puzzled as to why you have a _ in the permalink.

    There could be anotehr plugin that you are using that has changed this, adding in the _.

    changing it could brake the site.....

    i suggest BACKING UP!!!!!!!! then change the permalink and see what happens if it brakes or fails then use the backup.

    My advice is cautionary and should be used at your risk.. Please dont blame me if it brakes i am no wp expert.
