Sorry for the poorly worded question, I'll try to better explain myself.
I'm swapping (not migrating) from WP to Drupal and I'm trying to replicate WP's URL feature. I want it to initially be based off the title of the node ("My First Blog Post" => "my-first-blog-post")
What I'm not wanting is Pathauto to be directly linked to the title, so I can update the title to something like "My First Blog Post (Updated 5/4/2017)" without having to worry about the URL changing. I want the URL to be easily editable if the need rises, I just don't want it tied to the title.
Would the best way just be to add an extra field, and manually enter a 'URL title' in there?
