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.
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 http://my-site.com/my-speaker 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.
