To begin , you must first confirm that you are using the best WordPress Permalinks settings . Go to Settings > Permalinks , then click the Customize button and add the following code:
/ % Postname % /
This will pretty URLs that are named after their documents rather than the structure of the default URL “? P = 133” , which is ugly and bad for search engines .
The next concept to understand is the relationship between parents and children with pages . A father is a top- level, it is the children , everything else follows. Children are also known as sub – pages and are a convenient way to organize content on your site, especially if the template has a dropdown menu.
Now , say you are linking from the home page to a page several sub – pages deep . First , go to the new page you made and copy the URL that appears just below the page title . For example :
Note that I have the domain name . Not required . Now, if I’m in the home and I am making a link to the page Adding Images only select my text , click the link icon and paste the link in.
But what if I want to make a link from one page to another , in this case a link from this page:
WordPresstrainingcenter /editing-content/adding-images /
to this page:
WordPresstrainingcenter /editing-content/adding-videos /
The correct link to the page Adding images would look like:
.. / Adding – videos /
Note the additional terms and slash ? This is the part of the code that tells the system to go “up” from one level to the content editing , and then back “down ” view of what exists on the same level .
If this is all confusing, you can find a video version of this guide at the following link , where inside the WordPress interface is visually illustrated .
