    Here's what I want to ask. How do I make it so that if a category is selected it goes to a specific url? In other words, I want a video posts to go:

    /url/video/title

    All of my URLs go: /url/title

    Can this be accomplished?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    What permalink structure are you using?

    Maybe I'm asking the wrong question. So, I'll try again. Example url: http://controlalttv.net/video-using-singbox-to-change-the-channel/

    The default permalink is %postname

    Since the above URL is in the video category, I would like that URL to be http://controlalttv.net/video/video-using-singbox-to-change-the-channel/ and only this category.

    Can this be done or do I need to install another version of wordpress in the /video folder on my server?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    You'll want to try the permalink structure:

    %category%/%postname%

    That way it'll display the category name, and then the post name. We talked a bit more about permalinks and working with them in episode 54 of our show:
