#301 closed enhancement (wontfix)

More control needed over permalinks

While the individual entry permalinks can be set up, the text of some of the other permalinks can't be changed without hacking core files. For instance, get_author_link() applies "author/" to author permalinks, and pagination is set at "page/" and search is set at "search/"

It would be nice if these could be configured in the interface.

  • Patch set to No
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Acknowledged as a genuine wish :). This may be addressed in the future.

Just as a slight update, since this was submitted a long time ago, the "/site/" thing is configurable now... if .htaccess is writable.

But the "/author/" thing might still be nice.

#4 @MC_incubus

Updating to reflect current status, as well as adding "page/" as one of the unconfigurable parts (thanks Kimmo Suominen to pointing this out).

#5 @westi

  • Owner changed from anonymous to westi
  • Status changed from assigned to new

I'll have a look at patching for this.

#7 @markjaquith

  • Reporter changed from MC_incubus to markjaquith

Are you thinking option or filter?

#8 @westi

So far I've been looking at adding options that could be displayed on the permalink page or configured by a plugin.

Trying to make as many as possible of the fixed strings used configurable.

See #1762 for previous discussion.

Note that these strings can be changed via plugin.

Any status on this or should we close out this ticket for now?

#11 @ryan

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

We have plenty of filters and actions to cover this, and we're about to do something special for i18n permalinks in another ticket. Let's close.
