    Hello and sorry if this has already been discussed but i honestly don't even know what to search for.

    I've seen on many wp blogs a list of categories on the sidebar but when i hover my mouse over any of them, the link shows-up like http://website/tags/cat-name . On my blog, the address is http://website/category/cat-name.

    Moreover, on those blogs i saw, at the end of each post, there is something like "Posted in cat1, cat2, cat3".

    Now, what do i have to do to have this on my blog as well?

    Thanks!

    PS. My PHP knowledge is close to inexistent so go easy on me. Thank you!

    Are you sure that the blogs with '/tags/' aren't wordpress.com blogs? They have a seperate tag system that exists outside of the blogs.

    For regular wordpress, it uses '/category/'.

    It's rather moot actually as offite indexing systems see both as tags.

    It should be a setting you can reset at Dashboard -> Options -> Permalink if you want though.
