Subdirectory Domain

  • By default how to get new subdirectory blogs to look like: example.com/this_is_a_blog instead of example.com/thisisablog

    Thanks

  • I don’t believe you can, as the underscore (i.e. _ character) is an ‘illegal’ character for a blog name. You could probably use the hyphen.

    Read this: http://codex.wordpress.org/WPMU_Functions/wpmu_validate_blog_signup

    Thanks for the link, since you can’t do it with the underscore can you do it with a hypen? Ex example.com/this-is-a-blog instead of example.com/thisisablog by default

    or does this not matter with SEO that much?

    I think you CAN use a hyphen 🙂 SEO would argue that a hyphen is better, since searching for ‘this is a blog’ will show up your site, but ‘this_is_a_blog’ would ONLY show the version with underscores.

    Mind you, I’m of the opinion that shorter, readable, descriptive, urls are better for you in the long run 🙂
