About Knowledge Base URLs
The URL (page address, page link) is a unique address (location) of a webpage on the Internet, for example:
The Slug is the part of a URL that identifies a single page within a website using human-readable keywords:
- Slugs are typically generated automatically by WordPress from a page title but can also be entered or altered manually.
- When WordPress generates a slug it may optimize it for brevity and easy consumption by search engines. For example, a slug for the title “This, That & the Other!” will be “this-that-the-other”. Long page titles may also be truncated to keep the final URL to a reasonable length.
- Slugs are generally entirely lowercase with words separated by dashes, for example echoknowledgebase.com/wordpress-add-ons/
Permalink is a name for a permanent link (URL) that points to a specific webpage, post, archive, or any other page on a website. It is called permanent because this link should not change even if the underlying page ID in the database changes.
