I'm trying to figure out a permalink structure for my pages (not posts) in Wordpress.

Right now, I can add a "Category Base" for posts... so, something like www.mysite.com/categorybase/post1/ or www.mysite.com/categorybase/post2/

But, if I wanted to do something similar for pages, how would I do that? For example, www.mysite.com/pagebase/page1/ or www.mysite.com/pagebase/page2/

Anyone tried this before?

1 Answer 1


For the example you're using (ie www.mysite.com/pagebase/page1) you can:

  • create a page called pagebase
  • create a page called page1 and make pagebase the parent page - the url for this page will be www.mysite.com/pagepage/page1

This does mean that www.mysite.com/pagebase also exists as a browsable page, but I generally use that as a section description and section index page.

  • Hmm... that's an interesting and simple take. Thanks Anu.
