Resolved removal of the date in the url of a post


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi

Its probably a very simple answer, but how can i remove the date from my post url?

i.e. http://www.lyonshallnurseries.co.uk/wp/2012/10/19/winter-hardy-pansy-and-viola/

the /2012/10/19/ date seems to always be present on all posts only not pages. I have used wordpress in other websites and not had this issue until i used this fantastic theme

I have looked through the forum, i have looked through my wordpress settings - can't see the wood from the trees!

Appreciate any help

thanks in advance

A good search-engine optimized permalink is /%post_id%/%postname% resulting in something like yoursite.com/123/this-is-my-post. The bots like it because it gives a unique ID number and the post name in full.

Batman - you're a star! I took the precaution backed up the site first. Read the link about permalinks. A 1 second click and it works without any problems. Thanks very much.

Hi

You have this type of Permalink Wordpress structure

You can go to

Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks

And change the option.

First please read this
