A permalink is a unique link for content on your website. Permalinks are applicable for both content elements like PDF files and website pages.

WordPress has an option to change the formatting style of permalinks.

WordPress auto-generates permalinks when you create new content such as a new page, blog post, product, category or even upload a file.

The WordPress auto-generated permalinks for pages are normally OK, but for blog posts, WordPress may add a date to the URL.

You can select the "Post name" option which is located in the WordPress admin control panel under the setting tab to set a better URL structure.

  • Login into WordPress admin.
  • To go "Settings" / "Permalinks".
