Duplicate Slugs (5 posts)

    I had already made posts, pages, and categories, then decided I should keep a list of slugs I use, in hopes of preventing problems, but I found that I've already duplicated a slug, although one is used as a category slug, and the other is used as a page slug ("Writing"). This doesn't seem to be presenting a problem, so should I change it, anyway? Thanks.

    If you are using WordPress v1.5.2, then it will not be a problem, as WordPress will automatically append an increasing number to each duplicate slug.

    Is there a way around that automatic incrementing? I have posts with the same slug, but on different dates, and it automatically appended a "-2" to it even though there would be no clash. And it won't let me remove it - if i try to add it, it either doesn't change or it gets added right back.

    I've run into this both in my own WP 1.5-era install and my WP.com blog.

    Thanks, Kafkaesqui. That plugin should do the trick on my own site. I wonder if there will be any way around it on wordpress.com blogs.

    Just found wpc/forums and posted there:
