Can't change page permalink if slug metabox is removed
|Reported by:||dankod||Owned by:|
If the slug metabox is removed from the "Edit Page" page, it is not possible to change permalinks, using the edit permalink function at the top of the page.
Slug and other metaboxes are removed by the karma theme, in its admin/theme-functions.php (but only if 'ka_hidemetabox' in the wp_options table is 'true'):
Technically, without the slug box, the "post_name" field containing the new slug is not sent with the form data when you click the "Update" button.
I believe this is bug was introduced after version 3.1.3.
