Recommend you use the built in plugin uploader which comes with WordPress, but if you prefer the manual way

  1. Upload tidy-slugs.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Does this plugin uses loads of resources

Nope, this is just a quick hook which runs six php standard commands on your post title before passing it to the built in slug maker.
