Padlet links and custom URLs
Like snowflakes, all padlet URLs are unique. ❄️❄️❄️
Even if you transfer your padlets to a new account, change your username, or customize your URL, your padlet will never be lost. Here's how Padlet links work.
Breaking down a padlet URL
All padlet URLs follow the same logic. The logic is:
So, if you create a new padlet, you will get a link that looks something like this:
This is the padlet's permalink or permanent link. If you change your username or update the title of your padlet, the unique ID will stay the same. You can even import your padlets into a Backpack account, and the previous links will still work! Because each padlet has a unique ID, none of your links will break if things change in the future.
Customize your padlet URL
If you want a shorter link, you can create a custom URL for your padlet for easy sharing.
To customize your URL follow these steps:
- Open your padlet.
- Select the Settings cog icon (⚙️) on the action bar.
- Scroll down to the Advanced section and edit your URL.
Here, you can set a custom URL and copy it. Don't forget to Save! In our example, here is the custom URL: padlet.com/sweettater0303/1st_Grade_Supply_List
Why does my padlet URL have extra text added to the end of it?
