I posed this question to Alloy beta testers yesterday and I’d like to ask here to see what you all think as well…
So I’ve been trying to decide for a while whether I should attempt to build a custom “slug” feature for Alloy or not – whether it would be something users would like and actually use, or whether it would be a waste of my time in figuring it out when I could be putting that effort into something else.
Basically a custom slug would mean that you’d be creating the ID for each post separately from the blog title. You can do with with manually created posts now already, but the Editor stack uses the post title for creating the slug to make things simpler for the user.
In other words an example blog post could have a title of
"Great things to do on your road trip across America in 2021!" but you could make the slug something like
This would take some serious thought on how to do this without screwing up people’s current posts, so I would want to know if this is something that would be useful to you all, or not before setting off down this path.
