Customizing permalinks beyond wp-admin/options (3 posts)

    Hey Everyone,

    I want to change my company's video blog http://www.dssimonvlogviews.com to have the posts titles a little more customized. Right now I just have them as postnames implemented via wp-admin/options/permalinks.

    Is there a way to change the permalinks so that each post has a unique URL instead of just the post title?

    Also, if you go ths site http://www.dssimonvlogviews.com you will notice each indivdual post has dashes in between the words of the url. Can this be gotten rid of? Let me know.

    Thanks so much!

    The post title part of a post's permalink is generally referred to as the post slug. This can be changed on the same page that you write or edit your posts.

    In WordPress 2.0, to the right of the post editing box, there is a small box labeled "Post slug" that is probably collapsed. Click on the "+" (plus sign) to expand the box.

    In WordPress 2.5, under the Post title, there's a line that looks something like the following:

    Permalink: http://example.com/post-title/ Edit

    Click on "Edit" to change the post slug to whatever you want.
