Links & Slugs

Links
  • Links are the entire string of characters assigned to a post or page.
  • Links are assigned automatically once you’ve published or scheduled a post or page.
  • To create a unique link (URL) for a page, click the “Edit” button after the permalink and change the link name as desired.  Make note, that multiple words should be separated with hyphens (eg: /website-manual/links-slugs/).
  • Hyperlinks
Slugs
  • Slugs are a segment of a link, identified by a forward slash.  In the following link, “/website-manual” and “/links-slugs” are considered slugs:
