How to change your permalinks and why

After you change your tagline, the next step that you need to take is to change your permalinks.

Settings => Permalinks

How to change your permalinks and why

I always set my permalinks to Custom Structure and type /%postname% in the box.

Your permalinks should always be your post name for search engine optimization purposes but also for the readability of the user.

The date is a hindrance because:

  • It looks neat and organized,
  • It makes it easier if you ever want to recycle a post (say, if wordpress changes the way to do permalinks, I can simply update this post easily), and
  • Again, no one cares what date you wrote the post. Lol. I’ve read posts that have been years old but the information was still valid.
