Create a Custom Post URL

By default, when you publish a new post, Ghost creates the post URL based on the title ( If you would like to change the post URL to be something different than the title of the post, here is how you can do that:

  1. After creating a new post, click on the cog icon in the top right corner and it open the post menu.

Near the top of this menu, you will see the "URL" line. This is showing you what the URL currently is. Go ahead and click in this box, and change the URL to whatever you would like.

Now when you publish this article, the url will be [yourblog].com/new-example (or whatever you typed in).

If you have already published the post, you can still edit the URL the same way we just did. Just hit "Update Post" after you have made the change.

That is how you can set custom URLs for your posts! This also works exactly the same for static pages. Head to the next section to get an overview on the different user roles!
