    Not by default. There is probably a way to do it with a plugin. Since the slug is based on the title, why not make the title limit shorter? If I used onereallylongwordtogetaroundthelimit would you want that prevented as well? Max number of characters or words in a title or slug?

    well its hard to restrict the title limit on a community. twitter is hard enough to manage with a limit.

    i was actually surprised that no one has had this issue and there were no plug-ins either. :)

    well words would be fine. 3-4-5 to keep the link short and sweet. of course i am not looking for a wordpress like slug feature. but a vbseo like fixed limit on the number of words.



    I think you need to hook a filter into the slug and then explode “-” from string, then only join the number of values from the array with “-” as many as you need in slug
