# ComboStrap Routing - Permalink

permalink are short links that will be permanently accessible even if the page is moved

### Generated

A generated permalink is a link that uses the page id as path.

As the id is guaranteed to never change, it's the real / true permalink.

<permalink/>


A generated permalink performs a permanent redirection to the page url

### Named

A named permalink is a link that uses the canonical as path

Note that a canonical is not a true permalink as it may be modified (It should not but you never know)

• You can add a named permalink in your page with the permalink component:
<permalink named/>


A named permalink performs a permanent redirection to the page url.

For the named permalink, you can set a default canonical value with the autocanonical feature. It allows to use this feature without setting the canonical value for each page.
