    So many requests for new features or intergration of hacks that I'm sure you're not always getting feedback on stuff that goes 100% right.
    So:
    thank you for the post slug! EXCELLENT idea!!

    What? What is a post slug?

    It is the portion of a permalink that references the post. Example:
    http://yoursite.com/archives/2004/02/15/this-is-a-post-title/
    It allows you to override the default setting that sets "this-is-a-post-title" so that you could have it be "this_is_a_post_title" or whatever you wanted.

    I haven't seen a hack to do this? Is there one?
    Thanks

    culturevulture, at the moment no. Unless you make WP store static files (good luck), you can only do this with mod_rewrite.

    Wooo cool. Too bad all my google rankings are up there with dashes instead of underscores, otherwise I'd be all over that... :P

    Hi there,
    I am getting a little confused - nothing new there :) - Is there a global setting to do this or do we have to make the change very time we post.
    I would like the underscore on all posts.
    Thanks

    Not that ranking in Google is the be-all-end-all (or even all that much), but: while "my-post-title" is three words to Google, "my_post_title" is just junk, neither "my post title" nor "myposttitle". So if you are aiming for maximum ranking, it's best to avoid the underscores.

    Oh, and I may be teaching granny to suck eggs, but at least in Perl, IIS doesn't pass the PATH_INFO on, so be careful how much you rely on it :)
