Edit single WordPress permalink

Permalink Manager allows customizing each WordPress permalink with an inbuilt URI Editor. You can use this tool if you would like to make a part of your permalinks different from the general format (see “Permastructures“).

To change the single URL, please go to the WordPress content editor and click on the “Permalink Manager” button. You can find it just below the title editor field. After that, you will be able to fully customize the single permalink. What is more is that you can use the same panel to edit the custom redirects for this particular post or page.

Will the old WordPress permalinks redirect to the new custom ones?

Yes, you do not need to worry about 404 errors. Permalink Manager will automatically redirect the native permalinks to the new URL addresses. Additionally, in the “Manage redirects” section, you can set extra URLs redirects. They would redirect to the actual custom permalink.

Here you can find more detailed instructions on how to set-up custom redirects.
