How to Add Pretty Urls

What are Pretty Urls?

By default, any child pages that you have added to your website, Potion will create a url based on the Notion page title. So if you had a page title like this 👇

The pretty url created would look like this 👇

This is called a pretty url because it is seo friendly and makes sense. It isn't a random id or something that is unreadable. The "how-to-make-your-notion-page-public" is called a slug. The slug is the part of the url that comes right after the domain name and first slash.

Why you may want to manually create Pretty Urls

You can make your own pretty urls in the Potion dashboard. Why would you want to do this?
First of all, you aren't able to create multi-slash urls with the Potion automatic urls (for now). For example you couldn't make example.com/blog/my-blog-post because it has two slashes.
The other reason you may want to make a manual pretty url is because if you want to change the title of the notion page...
That will change the Potion generated url! and possibly break your links.

How to manually create Pretty Urls

To make a url that looks like this 👇, do the following.

  1. In the Potion dashboard, pick your site.

    1. notion image
  1. Here you can list all of your pretty urls.
  1. On the left side is the Notion url for that page
    1. You can see how to find the notion url here.
  1. On the right side is the pretty slug that you would like that page to become.
    1. You can have multiple slashes in the pretty url.
  1. You can add and remove these.

Thats it!
