Does anyone have any ideas on how I can change the page URL name to something more SEO friendly? I have created “pages” in the WordPress CMS and the of course they have a URL that looks like this “http://www.example.com/?page_id=183” I changed the permalink structure for the site but that only hits the categories/posts. Any way of having something like this for a new page “http://www.example.com/newpage”?
There is a pretty permalink to edit on the edit page for the page. I guess it’s not working for the pages for some reason. I did have to add the changes for the permalinks to the .htaccess file. I wonder if that had something to do with it?
Under your setting tab, go to permalink settings, change your common setting to “custom structure”, and fill in ( /%postname% ) in the box. This will get your permalink as http://www.yoursite.com/post-name . You might need to include some code in your .htaccess file (if required).
