I have some code at JSFiddle. The URL is something like:


I have shared the URL, but afterwords, I found some "typo's" that I need to correct.

My understanding is that if I edit the JSFiddle, I have to save it (update) for the changes I made to be saved, but If I use "update", the JSFiddle will be given a new URL like:


Can I edit a JSFiddle without changing its URL?

Is there a better way to do this so that I can share a JSFiddle and still be able to edit what people see at the URL I shared?

You have to Update the fiddle, then click Set as Base in the top menu bar. You need to create or fork the fiddle yourself before you see the Base button. If you are using a Fiddle that you did not personally create while logged in, then pressing Set as Base is going to create a new Fiddle at a new URL.

Note: The Set as Base button is only available to registered, logged-in users (as of February 2017, at least). The button is located between Fork and Tidy in the top menu bar.

  • When I click "Base", will the URL change with a new number at the end? Right now, the URL ends in "/4/". After I click "Base", will the URL change to end in "/5/"? Commented May 8, 2014 at 0:21
  • If you are currently editing /base/4/, it will update /base/ to point to revision 4 and it will switch back to /base/ in the address bar to reflect that. When you save again, it will be under /base/5/ (until you choose to make 5 the new base).
