    What is a post slug? How do I use it?

    If you want to permelink something a post slug will make the reference URL shorter. It’s like nicknaming your posts!

    The slug that is produced when you publish a post defines what the permalink will look like.

    Example: Blog url: myblog.wordpress.com, post title/slug: “My First Blog”

    The permalink ends up like this:

    “myblog.wordpress.com/2006/01/16/my-first-blog/”

    EDIT: and yes what “helpdesk” said.

    If the post title is very long (and even longer for the trackback url) it results in a very long permalink so the slug can be changed for brevity. Just be sure the slug is in the same format: no capital letters and words-separated-like-this.
