2.WordPress Permalinks settings. If you take a look at your address bar as you click through a new WordPress website, you will see urls that look like this:

http://www.78hg.com/?p=123

Clearly, there are many problems with this url. First, it isn’t search engine friendly. And second, it is hard for any visitor to remember. So, you can create urls that look like this:

http://www.78hg.com/2009/03/01/sample-post/

Or

http://www.78hg.com/sample-post.html

3.Wait a moment. Some one find wordpress permalinks is not work after setting, do not despair, it will work wait a moment. why need wait? When you update your permalink structure, WordPress creates something called an htaccess file. This file saves certain configuration settings for your link structure. However, it takes GoDaddy about 30 minutes to recognize that this file has been created, and start following the new rules within it.

Now is all ok.

For more information on using and customizing your permalinks, see the WordPress permalink documentation.
