Open to admin dashboard > Settings > Permalinks, select "Custom Structure", enter:


and click "Save Changes". Or, you might consider separating the two with a forward slash:


Using the /%category%-%postname%/ custom permalink structure, the News category will show as /news-%postname%. For the Game category, since the name is different than the desired permalink, you can edit the category: leave the Name as "Game", change the Slug to "play" and you'll have /play-%postname%.

  • Hi Gabriel, if my category Name is: Games Online how to change Permalinks to : play-%postname% ???

  • @DinhTv - Using /%category-%postname%/ as described above, edit your category named Games Online and change just the Slug to "play".
