WP Alternative Slug by 010Pixel


A new way to create multiple URLs for the same post. Very useful when creating url for multiple languages. e.g. your main url can be in english but your alternative url can be in your own language. You can share your own language url on social media.

WP Alternative Slug allows you to choose posts, pages and custom post types to have secondary url.

When you access secondary URL, it will bring you to the main article.

Made by 010Pixel

Nice plugin can create an additional alternative URL slug to existed post.
For example, current page is: www.yoursite.com/category/page-1
additional URL (for the same page): www.yoursite.com/category/Иван-Иванович-Иванов
Result: both URL will be active and available!
