I have installed brand-new wordpress-4.8.3. My next steps were, as in WPBegginer - How to Include Category and Subcategory in WordPress URLs:
- In Dashboard/Settings/Permalinks, I've pasted:
- Saved my permalinks settings;
- Edited & Published my "Hello World!" post;
- Visited http://localhost/wordpress/uncategorized/hello-world/
The requested URL /wordpress/uncategorized/hello-world/ was not found on this server.
Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu) Server at localhost Port 80
Bear in mind, it is brand-new fresh WordPress installation.
Then I've tried the hack with saving
. (the dot character) as Category base inside Dashboard/Settings/Permalinks but it did not help. I want my permalinks to be structured like this:
How do I do that?
If I save Custom structure as
/index.php/%category%/%postname%/ it does work, giving me http://localhost/wordpress/uncategorized/hello-world/ in my post edit mode, with editable hello-world part. However, I do not want the
index.php part in my permalink
