MQ Permalinks


MQ Permalinks is a plugin for the wordpress blog to make permalinks modification-secure. Changing blog name, page name or category slug creates broken links on external pages because the url for a specific page is changed.

MQPermalinks plugin creates modification-secure permalinks as follows:

  • p57-postname
  • a88-pagename
  • c2-categoryslug

Even if the names are modified for SEO reasons, older links will stay valid. Furthermore, if the page structure is modified, the permalinks for pages stay the same.


Above link urls can be uptimized for keyword as follows, leaving the old links still working:

  • p57-keyword-postname
  • a88-keyword-pagename
  • c2-keyword-categoryslug


Changing a post name, page name or category slug, creates a new URL with identical content. WordPress, however, includes a canonical link into the head section of the page telling search machines and browsers the correct URL for the page.


  1. Unzip the package, and upload mqpermalinks to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


The plugin creates a .htaccess file in the root directory

The plugin sets permalink structure option to default and disables the main menu link “change permalinks”
