Hello,

currently all my forum topics' permalinks contain the forum category name, eg.

aikyam.net/forum/spirito/ascoltando/

I 'd like them to be without the category, like

aikyam.net/forum/ascoltando/

 

Is this possible?
I can't find any option to manage permalinks in WpForo.

Thank you

Hi @nican,

We're sorry but there is no way to change the permalink structure.

I'll suggest you to check the wpForo short URL. Just click the "link" icon of each post to get a Short and Full URL.

@alvina Thnak you. I think you guys should add this possibility. 
Because currently if I move a topic to another category the url changes (because it contains the "category" name).
Using a permalink structure without the category name the url would remain the same even when changing the category.

Another solution would be to automatically add a redirect from the old url to the new one whenever a topic is moved to a different category.

 

Thanks

It is really nice feature !

However,

Is there any options to use "Short Url" by default in wpforo ?

I mean the global permalink structure for wpforo topics.

 

Since I am using utf-8 characters on our language which always shorten by wordpress permalink structure which have limited characters, So I would like to use only "Short URL" in systems.

 

I also try plugin that increase permalink characters but unfortunately it is always have problem when wordpress upgrade version so i have been looking for solution to use clean url like "Short URL" for the whole forum instead.

And currently I learned that, SEO is not have much effect for the keyword on url.
