Permalinks control how your links are formatted, and provide the foundation for how content talks to each other inside WordPress’ functionality. This video shows you how to configure them and why they are important.
Obox Themes use custom post types and taxonomies (the categories and tags) that depend on “Pretty” permalinks being enabled to work well.
Enabling Pretty Permalinks
- Go to →
- Select anything but the default option and click Save. We recommend “Post Name” as it is the most SEO-Friendly
Do this even if you had a non-default option selected. This causes WordPress to regenerate your URLS or Pretty Permalinks, and is required every time you create a new page using a special page template, activate a new theme, or on other rare occasions. Do this anytime you get a 404 error where you know content should be.
