Enabling SEF URL in WordPress can be a nightmare for a Newbie but once you get hold of it, it is really really simple. This is what you have to do as a newbie:
I normally advise people to use this type of format of URL:
There are some technical reasons why these URLs should start with a number and not just be a plain page name. So, start the URL with a number of some kind, such as the post ID, the year/month/day, or even just the year. Like this for example:
There are issues here with poor database structure resulting, extended load time on busy sites, incorrect identification of the content item, inability to associate the CSS stylesheet with the page – and more. WordPress needs an URL to start with a numeric denominator not a letter.
Go to: Dashboard >> Settings >> Permalinks >> Common Settings >> Custom Structure >> enter text as follows, in the box:-
[ slash - the post # - slash - the post title - .html]
This will give an URL like:
If you enter the text string without the slash that starts, WordPress inserts it automatically, as it must have it.
