Permalinks can be found under settings and permalinks in menu items.

The Permalinks Settings enable you to configure the URL format that is displayed in the web browser when someone browsers to your website.

WordPress will default your Permalinks to the day and name format however you can change this so that the URL is more user friendly.

So in our example, we change it to post name and you can see how a post or a page might be displayed to the user.

This can also help considerably with Search Engine Optimisation or SEO as its known.

To change the way your site URL is displayed, simply select one of the radio buttons options within these Common Settings and then click [Save Changes] at the bottom.

Next to each option is an example of how it will look to the user.

There is also an optional area to change the Category Base for the topics so, for example, all categories even, but you will often find this is rarely changed so you are best off leaving this empty as it recommends by default.
