Need subpage to show up in post's slug

I made custom wordpress site and the blog functionality is under a tab called "News".
When ever I land on a post page, I notice the url is:

I need each post to have this url:

I've racked my brain and exhausted my google searching.

You can try relocating the blog (moving the WordPress files) to a directory (folder) in the root of the site named "news."

ok , Go into settings>Permalink

add "news" in the Category base, i believe or Tag base.

Make news a category in your blog and have your posts under that, Then you can set the permalink style (Common Settings in WP Admin > Settings > Permalinks) to /%category%/%postname%/

Have the solution not work?

You can also try to add a news category in categories section... then apply all you post articles to that category.

Or you can add a plugin called "flutter" and make your own write panel called "news" and add your news articles to there.


You can make a page called "News" and run a query of the post that have the category "news" to show on that page by way of a shortcode post plugin.


You can make a new page template for the "News" page, and add this code to it:

<?php get_posts( $args ); ?>

<!-- configure it accordingly to your wishes-->

<?php $args = array(
    'numberposts'     => 5,
    'offset'          => 0,
    'category'        => news,
    'orderby'         => 'post_date',
    'order'           => 'DESC',
    'include'         => ,
    'exclude'         => ,
    'meta_key'        => ,
    'meta_value'      => ,
    'post_type'       => 'post',
    'post_mime_type'  => ,
    'post_parent'     => ,
    'post_status'     => 'published' ); ?>

So sorry, I got really excited and thought the solution was the correct one.
I really need the url to SINGLE posts to read:

news/title-of-post  (is this possible in wordpress? I've been looking at other sites and the single post usually has something like below:


No way to have post title as a direct sub to news?

I don't want to have to add the news category to each post as well as it's designated category.

I'm going to give flutter a try. I don't know if the final suggestion would work as it looks like it's not doing anything for the single post which calls the single.php file.

Sudaraka WijesingheWeb Application ProgrammerCommented:
In the WP Admin > Settings > Permalinks, set Custom Structure as "/news/%postname%/".
Meaning that you are hardcoding the /news/ part in your single post Url. Any and all post will show up as
