    I was thinking of changing the address of certain pages on my website. So if the name of the page is Contact us, then the address will be http://www.cookiedoughtreats.com/contact_us
    When I do this, should i copy and paste everything into a new page or can I change the address of the existing pages?

    Note: WordPress.org put the link above, that page does not actually exist.
    My website is http://www.cookiedoughtreats.com

    Hi bigmario777,

    For every page, there is a permanent link option below the title of page. You can change there the link/address/URL of every page. You don't need to create a new page and copy the content of existing page into new page.

    Thanks

    Go to Dashboard>Settings>permalinks and select Post name

    Great! Thanks for the tips. I already knew those existed, but I was not sure if I would lose any content changing permalinks. But I was recently trying to use a plugin called WP Super Cache and it requires a custom permalink structure. If in settings, I change it to custom structure, will I be able to just create whatever I want for any page after the domain name? Or will be able to edit the url when editing each page itself?

    Thanks for the help! I bit the bullet and just tried some custom structure from an online tutorial. It works well. Thanks again!
