Support » Plugin: Allow Numeric Slugs » Possible to allow year slugs?

  • Feature request

    Would it be possible to extend this plugin to allow for slugs such as https://example.com/2020? Currently this appears not to work. If I try to create a page named 2020 it’s renamed to 2020-1 or 2020-2.

    WordPress used to be a blogging platform where reserving such URLs for date archive purposes made sense. But today WordPress is used more and more as a general purpose CMS and it would be nice to be able to disable date archive functionality to free up these slugs.

    Unfortunately I’ve already printed material with such year-based URLs before realizing WordPress would hinder me creating these pages. I guess I can work around the issue (it’s too late to reprint) by using rewrite rules but it really bothers me that the final URL won’t be as clean.
