How to Edit Permalinks
Quick little tid bit of knowledge to those who might not know. Did you know you can edit your permalinks? I warn you tho don't edit your permalink once you have published your article.
Editing your permalink is very straight forward and easy. I just learned about this the other day so it is new to me. Here is a screenshot of where you can edit your permalink within your Wordpress dashboard:
I found out about this because I'm starting to write best of posts with the year included in the headline of the articles. So instead of writing a whole new article every year which is what you would have to do if you included the year in the permalink all you have to do is change the date in the headline.
If you have noticed if you don't edit your permalink before you publish your article the whole headline will be included in the URL of the post. This can get to be quite a long URL at time depending on how long your Headline is.
To make the URL shorter you just edit the permalink before you publish and you good to go. This way you can just include the keyword phrase in the URL and not the rest of your headline.
As for best of posts with the year at the end all you have to do once a year is change the year in the headline and the permalink stays the same.
That's your Knowledge Bitz tip for today. I hope this help someone who might have not known about it.
