Well here we go again, Reis trying to implicate Lord Toby Harris in things and again he has totally got his facts wrong. So what he altered a post, it is not a crime and perhaps he should have clarified why he changed the content, but people are allowed to alter posts, just like you delete posts. But to say you can’t alter permalinks in a post is misleading and a lie.
Of course, this new smear tactic doesn’t surprise me in the slightest, to be honest.
Reis states in his blog post of today the following:
One thing can’t be changed, when you make a post in a blog – the original “adress name” of that post:
People can edit the content, but if they don’t delet the post, the original first phrases are still there, in the post internet adress name. “Netiquete” demands that you show clearly to your readers that you corrected or changed the content of a post. Lord Toby Harris forget that?
Sorry Paulo Reis you are wrong.
If you go to http://www.lordtobyharris.org.uk/ and right click and select page source you will see that the site is running WordPress.
I have created a test post and saved it in daft:
When you click on Edit you get this
So you see, in WordPress you can alter the Permalink at any given time. If you don’t believe me, create a free WordPress account and try it. Permalinks can be altered in Worpdress and as Lord Toby runs his site based on the WordPress platform he would be able to change permalinks.
Edited to Add
Oh look here is the permalink for this post with the nice Edit button beside it.
And look I can even change the title of this post if I want by clicking the Edit button, altering the permalink and clicking OK and then update post.
Whether it can be done in Blogspot blogs I don’t know, but it can definitely be done in WordPress.
