[resolved] Breakes permalink/slug editing for post/pages (4 posts)

    Hi, I'm glad I finally figured this out, and sorry to say this promising-looking plugin apparently is causing some unwanted side-effects:

    On activating the plugin, the option to edit the permalink/slug of both posts and pages goes missing.

    An erroneous CSS declaration caused this issue. The permalink section is not needed on a publication page, so it was removed to avoid confusion. Unfortunately, we were initially hiding it through CSS and that same declaration was hiding the permalink field for posts/pages/custom post types.

    So nothing was broken ... just invisible.

    This will be fixed in version 2.1.0.

    Thanks Eric, that's good news.

    I will continue investigating the usefulness of WP Publication Archive for me further, when 2.1.0 comes out, then.

    Until then I'll see whether I can manually override the CSS declaration you mentioned.

    Thanks again.

    Actually, 2.1.0 released just after I wrote that :-) Let me know how it works for you.

    The problem with the permalink section is that it's a meta box that can't be completely removed with remove_meta_box(). That function call removes it initially, but once the publication auto saves, it pops back in. So the CSS declaration was used to set the meta box to display:none; so it wouldn't confuse users. I was just accidentally loading that CSS for every admin page rather than just the Add Publication page. Completely my fault.
