Yes, it's possible. What have you tried? – Chip Bennett Jan 9 '14 at 15:06
What research have you done? The topic you need to learn about is htaccess rewrites wordpress – GhostToast Jan 9 '14 at 15:06
See codex.wordpress.org/Permalinks#Category_base_and_Tag_base for some assistance. – Pat J Jan 9 '14 at 15:07
Thanks for replies. I know about htaccess and rewrites but is it possible with a function without modifying the htaccess? – Francesco Craparo Jan 9 '14 at 15:19

This has nothing to do with htaccess and/or rewrites—at least not directly by you.

Just go to

Settings -> Permalinks

in your WordPress Admin. Then, in the Optional section, set Tag base to article.

Hit Save Changes, and that's it.

thanks! Omg... I didn't see that option before. I'm sorry, maybe I am really tired :D – Francesco Craparo Jan 9 '14 at 15:39
No problem. It was not always there, though. Would you mind accepting my answer to not make your question haunt the site every now and then? – tfrommen Jan 9 '14 at 15:42
