What is a Permalink?

Updated February 21, 2007

If you are new to Movable Type and/or weblogs you may have encountered the term Permalink and wondered (as I did when I first read the term), what the heck is that?

A permalink is the permanent identifier to a specific weblog post or article. On Movable Type, a Permalink is usually a link to an entry's unique web page.

Clicking on the Permalink link will take the viewer to the page devoted to that entry, often with a place to leave comments.
