    Hello...

    I'm working on this adult dating site, using wordpress... so far I got it hosted at pwkg.net will get domain later, im using the semilogic pro script for seo optimization, but I wanna know how to make my article links to be pwkg.net/top-10-dating-key-tips instead of pwkg.net/?id=# or whatever... I mean with the text link its better for search engine rankings right??

    so how do I make it look like I want, thx in advance.

    ps just a link to a tutorial or they keywords I should research are ok answers =)

    Just click settings and then click permalinks....that is where you change the structure. Personally, I use

    Code:
    %category%/%postname%/
    but you can set up the custom structure however you like with the tags here:

    You can find it in the settings panel.
    If you want to make this work using a plugin.
    Al in one seo is a great wordpress plugin.
    You must try it.
