Before making any changes we will warn you that if your site is currently getting traffic from different sources that you will need to create redirects to prevent any issues with your site. If you are just starting your site and are not receiving traffic then you wouldn’t need to worry as much about the redirects.

To change your permalinks you would want to go under Settings, Permalinks in your wp-admin area. Here you will be able to select the permalink style and we will be selecting post name. If you are a brand new site then this is all you need, for already set up sites you would want to set up redirects.

For this process we will be using the Redirection plugin below:

Once the plugin is installed and activated, you will go under Tools, Redirection to set up the plugin. We will skip the options for monitoring and logging changes at the moment and you can enable those later should you want.

To add a new redirect and to prevent any formatting issues we would recommend copying them from our article below:

Depending on the redirects you want to set up you can decide which would be best for you in our article below.

    Hi, Can you please help to remove the post date from the search engine?

  • Veronica Valencia on September 15, 2020

    Hi!!! 😀 Could I ask, I am trying to look for a way to stop wordpress to send emails after the person registers in my website, but WordPress still keeps sending them emails regarding their user name and a link to set their password. Do you know how can I stop WordPress to send that email, or maybe customize it? So it doesn't say WordPress and instead my brand? Thank you for your time!!!
