  • This is also known as the “Slug” which is a screen option on WordPress backend.

    Intrigued why you need to edit this?

    Not an option in Frontend at the moment but wouldn’t be hard to implement.

    Yes its true I need to give the user the option to customize the slug, if its not hard to do, any chance you have a code snippet or can point me in the right direction. Thanks

    You will need to add the wp_insert_post parameter post_name to the $my_post array in the wpuf-add-post.php function submit_post() and add input fields to suit. You will also have to add this field to the wpuf-edit-post.php file as well. Use other input fields in these files as an example of what to do.

    Still curious on why your users need to do this.

    Related question: is there a way to use this without using the /%postname%/ in the permalink? We need to integrate this into a Chinese-language site, so using Chinese characters on the URL often creates problems. For this reason, %post_id% is better for use. Any thoughts on how to get that working?

    You need to edit the file wpuf_add_post.php as mentioned above. Find the submit_post() function and add the following parameter ‘post_name’ (set appropriately) to the my_post array which is passed to the WordPress function wp_insert_post().

    Thanks for telling me why you needed it. amax2222 wanted to change the permalink too as you noticed above but failed to reply when I asked why.

    Ok that sounds good. Now that I realized you have a fork of the plugin I am slowly going though your excellent advice on other threads to try to put together some long-sought solutions we have desired 🙂

    To WPChina,

    To save yourself some work you could also use the WordPress “Permalink Settings” option to set all permalinks to a default of your own choosing

    %home%/wp-admin/options-permalink.php

    Thank you for the tip. I worried altering it there would conflict something with WPUF either now or down road of development~ this is good news!

    Hi WPChina.

    Have added the Slug field to the new development release 4.3.
