Description (last modified by markjaquith)

  1. Right now, a post ID is shown as the post slug unless a slug is manually entered. Instead, it should show the dynamic slug generated from the title. Ideally, as the title is updated. (maybe using onblur to see if the typed-in title has changed, and doing a quick AJAX request to see what the dynamic slug would be).
  2. There is no way to tell the difference between a tentative slug, and a locked-in slug (either by choice, or by hitting "publish"). Perhaps the highlighting could go away and the slug could be bolded to indicate that it is set.

Well, part of #1 at least. Dynamic slug-building would still be neat.

  1. What if I had just entered a manual slug and then change the title? Should the slug be changed or not?
  1. Knowing whether the slug was saved by the user, or saved in DB can help us for point 1. However it want be easy, because autosave goes every minute and we will lose the tentative state very fast.

Do you really think we need something as complicated and error-prone?

I think a refresh icon would appear next to the locked slug, clicking it to WordPress try to generate a new slug.

wow this ticket is old. Um what about the yellow highlight if it's pending/tentative slug then green when it's "locked in"?

Closing as maybelater. Complete lack of interest on the feature on the ticket over the last 2 years. Feel free to reopen when more interest re-emerges (particularly if there's a patch)
