    I was wondering about, seen it proposed elsewhere, the benefits of appending .php or .html to the post name i.e /%postname%.php

    Any thoughts on that? It keeps the SEO keyword phrase benefit but shows that it’s a page – heck I DON’T KNOW – SOMEBODY TOLD ME IT WAS GOOD!

    • Some people says it benefits by appending .php or .html at the end. To me I don’t see how it matters to Search Engines. It might help for Human readers to link with it as a HTML Page.

  5. I am using the /%category%/%postname% format. As you said, when we change the slug, the links are broken but there is a plugin called Dean’s Permalink migration plugin that automatically redirects :)

    Nice article. Kudos.

    It might be a good idea to leave a unique number in your permalinks. I often have posts with the same name and it can be troublesome unless you leave in date or post_id information. I currently use: /%category%/%postname%.html

    Hi,
    If I change the category slug, will it affect my indexed pages?

    Currently I’m using category / post name as the permalink structure.

    I like old style. I’m using /%postname%.htm. Thanks
