Hello. I’m creating my own RESTful blog app. I am wondering about
creating post slugs. I think Wordpress creates a slug at post
creation time and stores the string in the database, then uses that
I read about the acts_as_sluggable strategy (http://
agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/acts_as_sluggable) but I don’t like
having a number (the ID) in the URL.
Any implementation tips from how Mephisto or typo does it? Is there
anything wrong with creating a slug at creation time, is there a
better way to do this? I’ll also be importing a Wordpress database
with existing slugs.
