Update the blog slug URL?

Post by orschiro » Wed Jan 10, 2018 4:56 am

Dear all,

The posts of the LM blog use a (I reckon) SEO-unfriendly slug.

Example: https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3494

More commonly, blogs usually use something like this:

http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/[b]2018/01/l ... e-features[/b]

Are there any specific reasons for using the current slug? Does it have any benefits over the more readable and more common one used by most websites?

The reason is probably poor configuration.
A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. - Max Planck
