    I have noticed that the permalink is changing. I don't know much about permalink, so I'm wondering what's going on ?

    That's odd, they both have slightly different url's when clicked on too.

    It's actually the same item page, but with 3 different url. Could you look into this ? There should be only one Permalink for one item page, otherwise I would have no idea which url to share in social media.

    This stuff is way out of my league but it appears the 2nd permalink is the correct one. I'll see if I can find anything out.

    What's your browser and OS?

    Just found out this was because of a recent update, you shouldn't see that on items added after that update.

    Sorry I'm confused, does it mean the permalink will change upon updates ? That way it isn't a permalink any more.

    No, it doesn't, and neither (should have) the Permalink.

    Yes, that's the number of the model. If you update the file, the number will be the same (and previous file version will be replaced). If you upload as new, you will get a new model with a new number (and the old model will still be avaliable until you delete it).

    Thanks for the answer. I think I will use the full link with model number. Plus Pinterest doesn't accept shortened link.
