my-site/blog/wordpress/

my-site/blog/wordpress/best-tips/

I am trying to edit the permalink of both posts in the admin area, but i don´t get anything, and i dont know how solve this.

You can't add additional "folders" in the post editing screen. You would need to change your permalink structure, so that Posts include the Category in the URL. In Settings > Permalinks, choose "Custom Structure" and paste

/%category%/%postname%/

Keep in mind this will change all your Post URLs, so you'll need to add redirects. Also keep in mind small tweaks to permalinks like this don't often give you a big SEO boost so depending on how many posts you would need to redirect, it may be worth investing more effort into optimizing the on-page content rather than changing permalinks.

  • Thank you WebElaine, I had thought about use categories, the problem is that this structure only will be used in some post with the same thematic... and with categories i will have another problem, the original post must have this structure: my-site/blog/wordpress/ – SlavisWolf Jul 4 '18 at 6:34

I've stumbled across this problem yesterday and used this plugin to great effect (Wich is not related to me in any way).

This allows you to create completely custom permalinks for posts and categories.

  • And that plugin work for you properly? i have tested it and when i try to go to that url if the url have slashes added wordpress dont go to single.php it use archive.php template. – SlavisWolf Jul 4 '18 at 9:41
  • I had some 404s but a adjusted my permalink structure … that was all. Are you sure that this problem is the plugins fault? … naturally there may be errors when you create a url that is already taken by the system … Can you change the url to something unique and test it again? – GDY Jul 4 '18 at 10:46
