URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator. An URL is the address of a specific Website, webpage, or file on the Internet.
WordPress URLs typically consist of the domain name of the website followed by a path that specifies the location of the page or post. For example, the URL for a WordPress blog post might look like this: https://example.com/2021/07/14/what-is-wordpress.
WordPress allows users to customize and modify URLs for pages and posts, making them more user-friendly and descriptive. This is known as the permalink structure, and it can be edited in the WordPress Dashboard under Settings > Permalinks. The permalink structure can be set up to include the date, post name, category, and other variables.
It is important to note that changing the permalink structure or URL of a page or post can impact the website’s SEO and search engine rankings, as well as any links that point to that page or post. Therefore, it is recommended to set up the permalink structure at the beginning of the website development process and avoid changing it unless necessary.
