There are times when you want to get the permalink of the post before publishing, and many of us get confused as we get the actual permalink after publishing it. WordPress has one amazing feature call short link which will be very handy for any WordPress blogger to get a link to their post prior to publishing. Here I’m sharing screenshots on how you can use short link feature.
While you write any article or click on edit article, you will see an option to get Shortlink. See image.
Like for this post URL shortener is. I like this feature but for domain with long name, this feature might not be very useful.
Also if you are using WordPress.com Stats plugin, you will be getting wp.me URL shortener links. So in that case I would suggest you to disable this plugin or wait for plugin upgrade.
