Support » Fixing WordPress » Create, change category slugs

  • I created a category cars and trucks and decided I want the category slug to just be “cars.” I can’t find any way to modify any category slugs. I remember being able to set the category slug at some point. I don’t know why it cannot be modified. This is especially important since I am considering placing the slug in the URLs going forward.

    ‘admin’ ‘posts’ ‘categories’ hover over the category name and click ‘edit’ – change the slug name, and ‘update’

    I don’t have any ability to change the slug name. I click ‘edit’ and I have:

    Name: (name entered)
    Parent: (dropdown)
    Description: (if entered)

    There is no field to edit the slug name. That is the problem.

    Hi thelaw are you using ‘Multisite’ because I seem to have the same issue too and I checked my other site not using Multisite its there.

    Dunno if its to prevent conflicts??


    We are running WPMU (a.k.a. Multisite) and have the same problem. When I’m in Admin/Posts/Categories, and click on a category to edit, I only see the following:

    Category Name
    Category Parent

    It’s not a terrible inconvenience for us, and nothing is broken, but it would be very beneficial to be able to change the slug.

    I don’t understand why this feature is not offered for MU…
