It really is a surprise to me and you may be surprised too when you would come to know that you can access your articles on wordpress hosted blog from a shortcut URL if you remember the article title.


Let me explain this to you. It’s really simple and quick too.

When you type your blog url and followed by a character or a word then wordpress searches the first article with that char/word and if found, the page is redirected to that article.

Let’s suppose; I type an url then wordpress will try to find an article starting with ‘a’ and if found will be displayed.

Other examples are or but if the char/word is not found then a 404 error.

After noticing it, I initially thought it is some plug-in which is doing it but I tried on other couple of blogs (, and many a times on my another blog ( and it all worked good.

It seems to be some unnoticed feature with wordpress.

Were you aware of it or you still think some plug-in is doing it? Do let me know.
