You can edit the URL of any published page, blog post, or knowledge base article. Once the content is published or updated, this will automatically create a redirect from the old URL to the new URL. 

Please note: changing the URL of a page, post, or article will reset its view data in your analytics and affect the page’s search rankings. Learn more about how URL changes can impact SEO.

Edit a page's URL

In the content editor, you can separately customize a page's domain and URL slug. You can also edit that page's canonical URL in its advanced settings. 

Please note: if the URL you're trying to set is already in use by other content, you'll need to change that content's URL before making your edits.

  • If the page has already been published, click the edit edit icon next to Page URL. In the dialog box, click Update to confirm that a redirect will be created from the page's previous URL to its new one. 
  • To change the domain of your page, click the Domain dropdown menu and select a domain. Only primary and secondary domains set up for publishing this type of page will be listed. Learn more about connecting a domain and the subscription limits for domains.
