Permalinks of some posts are "wrong"
Every time you muck with a title and change anything in it at all you are breaking a link. if that post has been indexed by search engines then you are creating 404 (page not found) errors.
The post/page slug is the part of the URL between the last two forward slashes. You can modify the post/page slug by clicking the Edit button next to it and shortening it.
Yes, I’ve known how to do that in other contexts. Just didn’t realize that the Edit button right next to the permalink was specifically for editing that.
You’re welcome but do know that changing URLs after they have been indexed by Google and other search engines is not wise. I avoid creating 404 pages.
When I change the title of a published post, but don’t change the permalink, will that create 404 errors?
Sometimes I publish a post with a short title so the permalink will be short, and then go and edit the title to be the full length I planned for it. Is this a mistake???
