How To Get the URL Before You “Publish”
Sometimes you need to report your URL to a sponsor before you publish, like for a giveaway.
You’ll be surprised how easy it is.
First “save draft”. Then schedule the date when you want to publish, then click on “Get shortlink” up by the Permalink. The box will open at the top of your page and you can copy and paste the short code, URL.
For SEO Purposes, it’s better to get the complete URL.
If you need the whole, complete URL, you have to “Save Draft” then you will see the Permalink come up right under your title. Then you will see your blog name and maybe something else, like the date.
Next to that there are some words hightlighted in yellow, click on those. That will show all the rest of the words in the URL.
Copy the words in the yellow and paste them somewhere, just temporarily. (Like in Wordpad)
Then “copy” the first part of the URL (your http://blog name) and paste that in front of the yellow words you already pasted.
Thats your complete URL!
Pretty easy, right?
