  • Is there a way to setup a permalink for pages in wordpress? but not posts?

    I wanted to call my “about me” page, instead of,
    have it say

    instead, so
    I was going to use /%postname%/ but that changes the posts (the /?p=1 stuff) which isn’t what I wanted to do.

    all i really wanted to do is change



    is that possible somehow?

  • It’s not a selective whislist 🙂
    I’s all or nothing.
    If the posts’ permalink changes from /?p=234 to “my-new-post-title’ > then Pages are changed, too.

    Note. Postname alone usually causes problems. Put something else, too.

    I know, its just doesn’t look good to say something like


    or /yyyy/mmm/ddd/about/

    that just looks dumb 🙁 so I dunno what to do but just leave it how it is with the /?page_id…oh well, thanks anyway

    um, it won’t be /archives/about if About is a page.

    thats what I’m asking…

    so like, could I do

    /archives/postslug/ if its a post, and
    /about/ if its a page?

    thats basically what I’m asking?

    I’m wondering how this is done? because I have seen it done on other blogs so I know it can be done I’m just trying to figure out how they were able to do it?
