    I don’t think you can do it through the bbPress interface at all ( I could be wrong about that, but I’ve never seen it. ) You would have to modify it directly in the database. Using a tool like phpMyAdmin find the topic in the bb_topics table, and modify the topic_slug. Make sure the slug you select does not already exist – the slugs need to be unique.

    thx chrishajer,

    i thought so… just wanted to exhaust any other means before editing the db directly.

    I thought maybe giving the thread a new topic would result in an updated slug, but it does not (slug does not change). I don’t see an option to change it anywhere, other than just modifying the bb_topic table directly.

    They are called permalinks for a reason :)

    @sambauers – but we’re used to WordPress where they’re pretty easy to change in the admin. :D

    WordPress actually keeps a reference to the old URL and sets up a redirect automatically I believe. So there it stays permanent. We don’t do that yet.
