Date as part of the Event-URL (2 posts)

    is it possible (or is it planned to be) to let the date be automatically part of the event url as it is possible for WordPress blog posts?

    We have a lot of Events with the same name, which automatically get a url like /event/my-event-5.

    I could change these urls after saving it with the custom permalink plugin, but I would rather have them named automatically using the date like

    or /event/2013/01/30/my-event/

    Hey tautologe. I've looked through our older forum threads on both this page and the PRO forum, and didn't find any other threads related to this (so alas I have no frame of reference or past solution to link you to). But I talked to my colleague Jonah and he said that there might be a relatively easy way to hook into the slug and modify that pre-save and include the event date. He also pointed me to this article: http://ostedesign.com/automatically-change-post-slug-and-permalink-when-editing-wordpress-title. You'd just need to add in the event date and you should be set.

    Hope that helps and good luck.
