linking to farmgate posts
What is a permalink? Many users wish to save or email the URL, or link, for a post on the farmgate. Because of the different index page types on our site, finding the appropriate link may be confusing. On this site we use a 'permalink' scheme to retreive individual articles, rather than an article imbedded in a month or category index page. The permalink is a URL that points to a specific blogging entry even after the entry has passed from the front page into the blog archives. Because a permalink remains unchanged indefinitely, its use avoids "link rot".
How to use a permalink. For each post, you will find a clickable permalink in the text footer (denoted by grey line at bottom of the text area). Clicking the permalink will take you to the permanent URL for that post. To save this post, simply add the permalink URL to your favorites list. To email a link to this post to other readers, copy the permalink URL and paste it into your email message.
Here's an example of the permalink location:
