No. of Characters in permalink is 30 but showing 61

  • In the preview snippet editor, the total of characters in permalink is only 30 but on the top it mentions as 61. Something else also seems to be written which is neither visible nor erasable.

    It is as my colleague said. For example, let’s say your permalink is: my-permalink. It has 12 characters.

    But it should count the domain, so if the full URL is, the total characters will be 20 + 12 + 1 (the slash at the end), so 33.

    That is why you are getting that message.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Thank you. I understand now. But then this gives a wrong impression. It will be better if the domain details are also visible for no. matching.
