Dear WP Forum,
I'm a newbie at WordPress. I have worked out how to change the permalinks for each page of my site by changing the copy in the 'Slug' field for each page, but a friend has sent me the following advice: "Please also change your settings so it will be done automatically whenever you create a new post - http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks" ... When I visited the Using Permalinks page, it stated I needed to visit the Settings > Permalink panel. I can't find this location on my version of WordPress, as the options under settings are as follows: General | Writing | Reading | Discussion | Media | Privacy | Open ID | Text messaging | Sharing | Domains | Email post changes | Webhooks. I have two questions: 1. Is my friend's advice compulsory (i.e. will her advice make a difference)?; and 2. If 1. is a vital part of improving the SEO ranking of my site, how do I find/download the Preference panel?
The blog I need help with is copyghosting.com.
