Docs to WordPress
[resolved] Custom slugs not working (3 posts)

    Docs are importing beautifully, but custom slugs do not seem to work. I'm using WordPress 3.3b2 with plugin version 0.4, with all extenders activated.

    No matter what I put inside the document, the title of WordPress document is always the title of the Google Doc.

    Example Google Doc:
    Title: my-attempted-custom-slug
    Body:
    The Desired Title |
    The rest of the text

    Resulting WordPress post:
    Title: my-attempted-custom-slug
    Slug: my-attempted-custom-slug
    Body:
    The Desired Title |
    The rest of the text

    The documentation of the feature I'm basing my attempt on is this, from the plugin site:

    We actually go one step further by fielding data using delimiters. We name the doc with a slug instead of a headline, and then the first line of the doc becomes a headline, followed by a pipe (|). After that comes the body copy, and at the very end we can add another pipe. Anything after that last pipe acts as a comment. We do this because we also use the API to put things, such as AP stories, into Google Docs, and we couldn’t figure out a way to add comments via the API.

    Hey guys, thanks for your patience. This isn't a standard feature of the plugin but I just posted something up to the dev blog on how to do it:
