How Do I Exclude A Folder From WordPress Permalinks?

Approx. read time : 2 min

The standard WordPress rewrite rules for permalinks might not work in some situations. For instance, they might not work if you have any other settings defined in .htaccess files present in the sub-folders.

In order to exclude the sub-folders from the WordPress rewrite rules, you must edit the .htaccess file and modify the line mentioned below in bold:

# BEGIN WordPress

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule . /index.php [L]


# END WordPress


RewriteRule ./ /index.php [L]

This completes the process of excluding a folder from WordPress permalinks.
