If you are looking for a guide that can help you in changing the permalink of your WordPress website, then you have landed on the right page. In this blog, we will discuss two methods of changing the permalink and you can check which one is more suitable for your requirement.
What is Permalink?
Permalink, in a way, is a link that is used as a hyperlink to any page or post. This link helps the user go to the current link and page. While mostly the biggest function of permalink is to navigate the user to the post or page, it can also be used for checking the content of the page.
Steps to change the Permalink in WordPress
Changing permalink is not a difficult process. With a few steps, you will be able to change it. The process can be performed in two different ways. In this blog, we will discuss both of the ways for you all. It is a custom permalink creation guide. In the first way of our two methods, you can change the URL of the website. You do not change the entire URL if you want, but in case you want to make the structure different, then this is the right way. The second one will provide you with a way to change the pages and URL posts individually. This is a more defined and specific way of doing the process. It is up to you which method you want to apply and, more importantly; it depends on your situation. So select whichever is required for your website’s permalink currently.
The first way as we discussed is to change the structure of the permalink of the website. When we are changing the overall structure of the permalink URL on the whole site you will need to reach the settings section of the website and then proceed to the permalink tab. When you see it click on the tab and then tap on the button which is visible on the screen. You will be able to see the custom structure on the same screen. After doing this, you have to choose all the tags that you want to add to the structure. This will be done by tapping on the tab and selecting it after which you have to click on the button which is shown on the downside of the screen.
Make sure you pick the tags in the same way that they should be set on the URL. Performing all these steps is very simple. Just make sure you select the tags in the right pattern and then save the changes in the end. For saving the changes you have to click on the save button and then you will see that all the structure on your permalink URL of the WordPress website is changed and the new structure is visible.
The second method is for the ones who want to make changes in the individual slug of posts and pages. Just like the former one, this process is also very easy to execute. For doing this process you have to open the website on the backend. Here you have to go to the editor section and check for the pages and posts on your website. When you can see the classic editor after this you have to tap on the link to edit. When you do this, you will get to change the URL in the right way that you want. When you are using the block editor, you have to check that you are using the tab in the document section, which is on the right side of the sidebar.
