  • Now you have the option to choose how diphthongs are converted.


  1. Install and activate your plugin like every other WordPress plugin.
  2. After installation the permalink of every new post will be converted to greeklish.
  3. You can adjust conversion and disable automatic conversion on ‘Settings’ > ‘Convert Greek Permalinks’.
  4. To convert old posts/terms, go to ‘Settings’ > ‘Convert Greek Permalinks’ > ‘Convert old posts/terms’, select the post types and taxonomies you want to convert and click the “Convert Permalinks” button.


How do I install it?

After you install and activate your plugin like every other WordPress plugin, every new post permalink will be now converted to greeklish automatically.

Can I configure the conversion?

On Settings > Convert Greek Permalinks > Settings, you can also modify how the plugin converts the permalinks. Currently you can:

  • Enable or disable automatic conversion
  • Choose which post types and taxonomies you want to be affected by automatic conversion
  • Choose how the dipthongs will be converted

From version 3.4.0, the filter agp_convert_expressions has been added to allow you to make further changes.

function change_expressions( $expressions ) {
    // You can modify the rules of conversion
    $expressions['/[βΒ]/u'] = 'g';
    return $expressions;
add_filter('agp_convert_expressions', 'change_expressions' );

How do I convert old permalinks?

If you want to convert all your older permalinks, go to Settings > Convert Greek Permalinks > Convert old posts/terms , select the post types and taxonomies you want to convert and click the “Convert Permalinks” button.

Does it support WooCommerce?

Yes. It supports all custom post types or taxonomies, including Products, Product Categories and Product Tags of WooCommerce.

Does it support WP-CLI?

Yes! As of 3.1 version, wp-cli commands have been included. You can convert all your permalinks with wp agp convert or just check how many greek permalinks you have with wp agp check. Use wp help agp {command} to learn more about how to use them.

Thank you for this useful plugin. P.S.: It will need to get up to date with the new WooCommerce tables aka HPOS – currently it’s not compatible.
