i want to change only the url/permalink of the home page for example like this

mysite.com to mysite.com/blog .

Guys don't think i am a noob, i know that there is the option on wordpress dashboard Settings/General Site Address (URL), but that changes the url for all site posts, categories, tags etc. I want to change the link just for the home page, nothing else. I also tried to set a static front page but still the url/permalink didn't change for the home page.

It wil be great if anybody can help!

have you tried the "quick edit" button on the WordPress page admin area? You can change the slug there but I am not certain that's what you are looking to do.

Actually, sorry. I tried this myself, you can change the slug but it's not showing the change in my local environment when I navigate to my own home/front page. I was going to delete this but maybe it will help somehow.

  • Thanks but that's not the solution. I need another way to do what i am looking for.

In the admin panel of WordPress, you have the option to set your blog page as your home page under Settings > general > home page.
If it is a blog you are after.

Maybe this can be a solution for you.

  • But you still can't change the permalink, all i want is to change the url/permalink of the home page.

  • Ok, you can redirect using .htaccess file but I advise against it (SEO reasons) if you are familiar with Javascript you can append a suffix to your URL

  • wordpress.org/plugins/redirection have a look at this, it may be of use
