Hi guys, Just wanted to know the best way to link to other pages in wordpress.
I have seen some do it the following ways….
1) Absolute static URLS
2). dynamic with page name (e.g. wp/about_us)
3) Referencing page ID’s (e.g index.php?page_id=15)
I just wanted to know which is the best method, or any other recommended method which I have not included above.
Thanks in advance
I think it’s down to personal preference really, but I prefer to have my permalink structure set like this;
I think it just looks neater as opposed to the other types, like I said. It’s just a matter of opinion.
If you’re talking about links coded into a theme, and not inserted via the WYSIWYG editor, Then use [get_permalink($post->ID);](http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_permalink)
I agree with Scott. Personally, I think the us part in About Us is pointless. Same thing with Contact Us.
I say absolute static URL’s, so if your content is ever scraped it’ll point back to the original source (your website).
Thanks for the feedback guys. Totally agree with your comments.
