How to edit WordPress permalinks individually?

Permalink Manager allows to customize each of WordPress permalinks with inbuilt URI Editor. You can use this tool if you would like to make a part of your permalinks different from the general format (see “Permastructures“).

To change the single URL please go to WordPress content editor and click on “Permalink Manager” button. You can find it just below the title editor field. Thereafter, you will be able to fully customize the single permalink. What is more, you can use the same panel to edit the custom redirects for this particular post or page.
