A long time ago, a long time that has been talking about that WordPress should allow to choose the type of permanent links since the installation it does not make sense to install with the permalinks by default the ugly ones (although effective) when everything we wanted to change them after finishing the installation to choose other more human
Well, is already working for that in WordPress 4.2 permanent links can be chosen from the installation .
that, unless your server does not allow it, you will never start a new installation of WordPress with those ugly permanent links of type
http://misitio.es/ ? p = 21 but you will be able to start with something more nice and intuitive like
http: // misit io.es/hola-mundo/.
It is more, if you happen to make the choice of the permanent links in the installation WordPress will be installed by default already with permalinks pretty , by work and grace the rewrite of mod_rewrite or nginx of type
/% year% /% monthnum% /% day% /% postname % / . That is, for example:
And in case it was not available on rewrite on your server then the permalinks of a newly installed WordPress would be such as
/index.php/%year% /% monthnum% /% day% /% postname% / that either They are so bad. It would be something like this:
In this way we will have the two best possible options, or choose the best ones permalinks possible in the installation or, in case of not doing so, to have from the installation of a human permanent links by default without having to waste time in later configurations to achieve that goal
I suppose it will seem like a good idea to me, but if you see some fault, you tell us in the comments.
