You can navigate to WordPress permalink settings by going to Dashboard -> Settings -> Permalink. It looks something like the picture below. ( my WordPress installation directory is WordPress on localhost).

Common Settings: Here the first section is Common Settings where you can set the URL structure for your WordPress site.

  • Plain – Your URL will look like https://example.com/?p=123
  • Day and name – It sets the URL of your post according to the date on which post was published and the name of your post. Example: https://example.com/2021/11/05/post-name/

Optional: These are optional settings for custom structure of your category and tag archive URLs.

  • Category Base – Let’s take an example here, so your default category URL is like: https://example.com/category-name/ Now if you add books in your category base your URL will look like: https://example.com/books/category-name/
  • Tag Base – Here you can add tag base same as category base. After you are done with all the settings click on “Save Changes” to apply the settings to your WordPress site.
