Custom Permalinks


Lay out your site the way you want it. Set the URL of any post, page, tag or category to anything you want.
Old permalinks will redirect properly to the new address. Custom Permalinks gives you ultimate control
over your site structure.

Be warned: This plugin is not a replacement for WordPress’s built-in permalink system. Check your WordPress
administration’s „Permalinks” settings page first, to make sure that this doesn’t already meet your needs.

This plugin is only useful for assigning custom permalinks for individual posts, pages, tags or categories.
It will not apply whole permalink structures, or automatically apply a category’s custom permalink to the posts
within that category.

If anyone wants the different Structure Tags for their Post types or use symbols in the URLs So, use the Permalinks Customizer which is a fork of this plugin and contains the enhancement of this plugin.

To exclude any Permalink to processed with the plugin so, just add the filter looks like this:

No support

I sent an email for a support question and did not even get a response. Too bad b/c the plug-in is actually very helpful.

Not working for taxonomies

I tried using this for a custom taxonomy, but when I try to change the permalink, nothing happens. The field is empty after the update. When I click in it, the old (wordpress generated) permalink shows up.

No error message, nothing in the debug log, just does nothing.

Great Plugin works as expected
