What is a "permalink"?
Wikipedia defines permalink as:
A permalink, or permanent link, is a URL that points to a specific blog or forum entry after it has passed from the front page to the archives. Because a permalink remains unchanged indefinitely, it is less susceptible to link rot. Most modern weblogging and content-syndication software systems support such links. Other types of websites use permanent links, but the term permalink is most common within the blogosphere. Permalink is a portmanteau word made from permanent link.
This module allows you to add a permalink to any node type. The link will be displayed as text that is easily copied from your site so that someone can link to the node. The link text is to
?q=node/NID instead of an alias.
Features of the Permalink module
Drupal 6.x version
- The 6.x branch of Permalink includes a number of new features. In addition to appending a copy-and-paste box containing the node's permanent, unaliased URL, Permalinks can also be added to the "node links" -- the list of links at the bottom of the node that often include "Add a comment," "Reply," or "Edit" -- for both full-node and teaser views. The visibility of the links and copy-and-paste box are configurable per content type.
- The link text and title attribute are fully customizable, and all output is themable.
- Comments now have Drupal 7.x-style permalinks. For more information, see #574712: Add Drupal 7.x-style permalinks to comments.
Drupal 5.x version
- The 5.x branch appends a copy-and-paste box to each full-node display. This box is configurable per content type.
- There are currently no plans to backport new functionality to the 5.x branch. All new functionality will appear in 6.x and later.
