Comment posted to SEO Friendly WordPress Permalinks by Template Creator.

The page you are on now is a WordPress blog Page not a WordPress blog Post. There are two types of webpages and WordPress named them so well a page called a Post and a page called a Page (calling them Static Pages would have been more helpful)!

Blog Posts are the type that get put in the monthly and category archives and archived on the home page and are organised by date.

Blog Pages are not part of the archived pages, they are basically static pages like the default About page and are only linked from the menu (under Pages) and in some themes an extra menu usually below the header. You can ad extra organisation by giving a blog Page parent or child pages.

We have no control over the permalink structure of blog Pages, they are always:

/has-no-parent-page
/has-parent-page/child-page

Sort of format.

The blog Page you are on now is a child of WordPress SEO Tutorial Page that is linked on the top menu, which is why it looks like it’s in a category called /seo-tutorial-for-wordpress/ (that’s the URL of the SEO Tutorial parent page, there is no SEO Tutorial category).

So on this site I’ve used %postname%.html format for blog Posts. There’s no real difference between %postname% and %postname%.html really.

Hope that makes sense.

What you describe sounds like the static Page still exists. I would first double check it doesn’t exist under your Dashboard under Pages on the left menu. Might be in
