If my post topic is how to change blogger post url using custom settings than it will shows like this, Techblis.com/12/2/2011/how-to-change-blogger-url-using-custom-settings. You must cut out date from it and squeeze it according to your desire only from the help of using this feature.

How to redirect old post url to new one?
In wordpress you need to install redirection plugin and can replace your older with a new one. But in case of blogger you don’t need to custom install anything, in the settings there will be an option of redirect you just open it and setup redirection url on your desired post url to save your site from excessive 404 page errors.
Likewise you can also setup your static page url in blogger. Without using the option of alder interface as some of my friends insist us to do it from there, you don’t need to search any other unethical method. Why use older interface where as it even obsolete by Google itself, if you want to make a page on Write For Us than you just need to set its permalink from the radio option as I have mentioned earlier.
