I need some help because I’m new to WordPress. I’ve just setup a site and manually installed WordPress (using FTP & configuration files) & so far so good. Question is how do I configure for the following scenario?
I’m moving over a site from a static HTML content over to WordPress and I don’t want to change the URL structure. The URL I’m trying to end up with need to look like http://www.domainname.com/foldername/filename.html.
In WordPress I setup the folder names as categories and am able to get the permalink feature (/%category%/%postname%.html) to match that. However I can’t figure out what to do with the filename.
Do I add a custom tag that I’ll set for each post? I tried creating custom tag called filename and specified /%category%/%filename%.html but that doesn’t appear to work. Maybe I’m not creating the custom tag correctly, but it’s just adding it on the post page, right?
