    like instead of :
    ....com/?p=80
    i would like them to be something like:
    ....com/keyword1_keyword_2/

    is this posible ?

    You have to adjust the permalinks in Wordpress panel

    Login to your Wordpress admin panel
    Go to settings>permalinks

    You have to set permalink structure to CUSTOM STRUCTURE and then type "/%postname%"

    I did this change whit the permalinks just the other day, my great worry was that i would ruin the work that had been done ( i had been running like that since i started two years ago) which means links and bookmarks would dissaper since the link changes, but nothing happened, adresses like .com/?p80 still works togheter whit .com/keyword1_keyword2/ urls.

    I think All-in-one SEO pack can also do that.
