What is Permlink?

Kid Dabb

Recommended Posts

I just noticed a bright green little dot of a button to the left of _Original Post_

in the header for whatever Thread you're looking at. I think it's new - not sure.

When you hover your mouse over it it says Permlink. Clicking it did something

but nothing I was able to notice.


Does anyone know what this is?

Found a definition for "permalink" that seems to fit:


{font:Arial}({font}*PERMA*{font:Arial}nent {font}*LINK*{font:Arial}) A unique URL assigned to a blog or news clip posting by blog or syndication software that remains permanent for that article. It is common to routinely move old blog postings and news articles to different parts of the site. Without a permalink, all external references in documentation and on Web sites to these articles become invalid.{font}


{font:Arial}The permalink is made up of a base URL combined with elements such as date, time, names and numbers or just a unique number. Using an index, the site keeps track of the physical location of the article and converts the permalink to that address.{font}
