WordPress – How to make URL’s include the post title

By Default, WordPress will use the permalink for post and page URL’s.

These look like www.domainname.com/?p=123 which have limited usability and are useless when it comes to SEO.

To fix this you can configure the permalinks to use the post title, for example www.domainname/post-title

This can be done by following the steps below.

  1. Log into the WordPress admin
  2. Open the Settings -> Permalinks page
  3. Select the ‘Post name option
  4. WordPress-URLStructure2
  5. Click ‘Save Changes’
  6. Now new and existing posts and pages will use the post title for the URL.
