How To Use Post Slug in Wordpress?

The post slug in Wordpress is the same which we have discussed above. WordPress automatically generates post slugs from a post’s title. but here in Wordpress The permanent link is created based on the title which later you can edit it and make it short and optimized. To Change the Slug or URL You need to First change the URL Structure of your posts for example you have to enable Custom Permanent link To Enable this First Go to

Settings » Permalinks » Use Your Desired URL Structure

But it is necessary to use %postname% in your URL Structure in order to change the permalink in the Post.

If you don't use Custom Permalink and %postname% in your Permalink Structure then you cannot edit the Post URL through the editor
