In Wordpress, there are a bunch of options to the right when you are drafting a blog entry. One of them is called the “Post slug”. I’ve always wondered what this was, so I decided to test it out on this post. I think it is the URL entry for a permalink, based upon some information I found at Wordpress.org.

Result: test failed! It makes sense though, to use permalinks in such a way that the page title can be used as a “key” for Wordpress to search the database for the entry requires mod_rewrite. Since I try not to use .htaccess files at all, and keep my Apache configuration files as simple and clean as possible, I’ll go without. Oh well.
