Can/How Do I Change Permalink Slugs?

  • I want to change the slug of a topic. I.e. change the URL to

    I read a couple of other topics on the forums here that seem to suggest that this is already possible, though perhaps I’m reading more into it than is the case. If so, how is this possible? It should be known that I’m using the pretty permalinks via the alternative /bb-admin/rewrite-rules.php option.

    P.S. I’m aware that you can alter the slug via phpMyAdmin and failing a resolution here I’ll do that, but I’m wondering if there’s a method to do so without logging into phpMyAdmin?

    P.S. I seem to have posted this in the installation forum rather than the Troubleshooting forum where it would be better placed. To any admins – feel free to move it there.

    Topic slugs can’t be changed via the interface, you have to use a manual method like direct access through phpMyAdmin.

    This would be great, because special letters in some languages need to be convertet, mostly manually.



    Well one year later, do we have any progress. Is there anyway to change the permalinks via the interface (dashboard) or somehow ?
