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, there are two easy ways to do that.

When you have created a new post, before publishing, click on the cog icon in the bottom right corner and it will bring up a menu.

At the top of this menu, you will see the "URL" line. This is showing you what the URL will be unless you decide to change it. 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 (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.

The other way to make these URL changes is from the admin menu. The admin menu is the menu you see when you first log in.

To change the URL of a post, click on the post you wish to change in the left hand column, and then click on the cog icon in the top right.

This will drop down a menu where you can see the current URL and change it to whatever you would like.

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!
