To be able to use this Blogger technique, you have to sign in first at Blogger in Draft – draft.blogger.com instead at www.blogger.com.
It is a new feature that is an additional option seen at the right sidebar of post editor – Enclosure Links. You have two options for this:
- Leave the default – AUTOMATIC URL. Permalink is automatically generated for you.
- Custom URL. You can type anything of your preference even if it’s not related to post title or create permalink of any number of characters and not be subjected to the limit that Blogger imposes.
Reminder: You have no control over the permalink and no limit to the number of characters in it so if you have a long post title, the last few words will be left out.
When a post is published, Blogger will automatically create a permalink, for example:
Blogger-custom-permalink would be from the post title.
