How To Change The Permalink Settings in WordPress: Data Driven

How To Change The Permalink Settings in WordPress: Data Driven Daily Tip 274

By: Paul Hickey, Founder and Lead Strategist

Hi WordPress Content Managers! If you’re a small business owner or member of a small marketing team that manages content on a WordPress website, than you’re who I’m referring to when I say “WordPress Content Managers.”

Do you know about permalink settings in WordPress? These are the settings that make your URL or “slug” on all of your Posts.

These settings are crucial yet often overlooked

By default, when setting up a new site, WordPress adds the date to them, and sometimes, depending on the theme or hosting, they can get all muddied up with canonical data.

What you need to do is clean them up by removing the date and simply making the URL display the post name.

This video shows you how.

But if you don’t want to watch, you can just go to your WordPress admin dashboard and find Settings and Permalinks!

Thanks for reading, watching and listening, and have a great day!
