I am working on WordPress permalinks. I wanted to change the permalink URL from

xyz.com/abc/locations/18 (which is location id)



With locationid the page is loading perfectly but when I change to locationname the page is giving a 404 error.

Is this a custom post type? Default Posts? How do you change it? – kraftner Jun 2 '14 at 12:25

Seems you have not set the permalinks correctly..

Delete your .htaccess file and try setting permalinks to postname enter image description here
