Mods/admins to change topic URL slug (just like in WordPress)

(Anton) #1

Currently, for our Russian forum, all the topic titles are getting transliterated to a weird English notation of Russian words before being used in URLs. It looks strange and does not read well.

Additionally, for many topics (even English ones) I’d like to set topic slug (just like you do for posts/pages in WordPress). I guess making them different to corresponding topic titles would add some value to the URLs in the eyes of Google.

This is a duplicate request a few times over – if you want to improve the slug ascii transliteration for a particular language, you’d have to do it in the Ruby / Rails function responsible.

We don’t have plans for custom per-topic slugs at this time, though.
