  • I have my permalink set up like this /%category%-for-%postname%/ the problem is if i reuse the same title it gives me a “-” then a number is there a way to bypass this or a plugin the does it?

  • I’d love to know about this as well. I currently use /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/ so I figure that even if I use the same title every few days, each link should be unique. There’s no reason to add the number to the end of it.

    I don’t think there is a way to change that.

    As far as I know /%postname%/ will always need to be unique.

    Some blogs use domain.com/%postname%/ – which even though is not good practive – it’s important that the post name is a unique string.

    Could you elaborate on why you think this is not good practice?

    Actually, that was my mistake, after 2.0 it’s not supposed to be an issue if you use domain.com/%postname%/

    The problems arise when you structure things domain.com/%category%/%postname%/

    Sorry for the mistake 🙂
