Permalinks are set to default

When your WordPress plugin imported your backup, it checked to see if the webserver supported pretty permalinks. Pretty permalinks are SEO friendly URLs in WordPress that contain post information, categories, tags and URL title, allowing you to use relevant keywords within your URL.

The plugin detected no support for pretty permalinks in your web server and set the permalinks structure to its default type.

How to enable pretty permalinks in Apache:

  • Enable mod_rewrite module.
  • Set AllowOverride All in your Apache site configuration.
  • Login to the wp-admin dashboard. In the settings, go to the permalinks screen and choose one of the more common permalink structures or enter your own in the ‘custom structure’ field using the structure tags.

How to enable pretty permalinks in IIS:

  • Enable URL Rewrite 1.1 module.
  • Login to the wp-admin dashboard. In settings, find the permalinks screen and choose one of the more common permalink structures or enter your own in the ‘custom structure’ field using the structure tags.

    This plugin is used mostly by not-so-technical users. That’s the beauty of it. But here you go into a language we don’t understand.

      Yes, I am sorry that the article is difficult to understand. Ideally, you don’t have to do any of these and instead you can contact your hosting provider to do it for you. You can send them this article.
