In this documentation, we can learn how to set permalinks in WordPress.


1) Login to the WordPress admin panel.

2) Go to ‘Settings’.

4) Select the permalink structure.

Plain: This is the “ugly” permalink setting.

Day and name: This uses a year/month/date format followed by your post’s name. The name here refers to the slug of your post.

Month and name: This is the same as option two, but without the day information.

Numeric: This options just use the ID of the post from the row in the wp_posts table of your database.

Post name: This one uses the name of your post.

Custom Structure: This last field allows you to define your own structure using the full set of structure tags available in WordPress.
