Routing is how the URL in the browser address bar determines the content of the web page. By default, the plugin uses query parameters for routing, so the URL of a particular speaker will be of the form


This is the simplest form of routing, and works independent of how Wordpress is configured.

Custom URLs

The URL for a single speaker, lecture, and partner company can be customized for easier link sharing. This is configured in WP admin → Talque → Settings. For example, you can configure speaker URLs to be of the nicer form


For this to work, your Wordpress configuration must satisfy

  • The route must not already be used for something else (like an existing WP page, or a different plugin)

  • The Wordpress rewrite engine must be active, that is, WP admin → Settings → Permalinks → Common Settings must be set to something else than Plain.
