Since post permalinks can be quite long (especially if the date is included and for long post titles), I'm not sure a column is a good idea. Certainly not one that's displayed by default. It would likely make the posts overview screen more daunting for novice users.

There are several plugins available that will add the column (such as or offer this functionality as part of a more complete solution (

I would prefer to view the permalink and/or post ID with the WordPress native tools.

I can't see this being added to core to be honest. Is this something that 80% of users need to see visually on the post listing screen? I don't think so, plus it's a technical piece of information, plus the permalink is available by hovering / clicking / right clicking the View link below each post, or from the post editing screen.

Thanks for the suggestion @mimoho but I'm going to close this as wontfix.
