Slugs vs Ugly Permalinks

  • What are your thoughts on permalink styles? Do you prefer Slugs or one of the ugly choices?

    Personally, I feel that slugs are better for SEO, but I can see that the URL’s could get pretty long quite quickly.

    Also, if you have a post with the same exact TITLE as another, will this foul up the SLUGS url’s?

    Thank you for your thoughts.

    In WordPress, when a page title is the same as a previous one, the slug gets a number appended to it, like this-was-written-about-before-1, so I imagine bbPress has the same protection built in. The slug needs to be unique.

    It does indeed.

    Thank you for the information; I really appreciate it. That’s just another reason why I am thinking I will continue to use slugs!

    Merry Christmas!
