    Can any recommend a wordpress theme that doesn't use dates as part of the url?

    I want it to look like mysite . com/keyword

    And then the sidebar would be a listing of the keyword posts broken up by categories.

    Any good themes that do this?

    you have to change the permalink settings, it has nothing to do with the theme

    Yes LBrown is correct.

    You just need to log-in to your WordPress account.

    Click Setting on your control panel.
    You should see something like this:

    WordPress address (URL)
    Site address (URL) Enter the address here if you want your site homepage to be different from the directory you installed WordPress.

    I think the second box is the one you are wanting to change. The page with the date on it is likely the WordPress address URL.

    Just remember - if you are building a big WP site with more than 1000 pages, then might you benefit from keeping the dates in your url!

    This is the right way to do it.

    always do this as its the basics of setting up a wp website.
