[Resolved] Slug length limited to 20 characters

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: I would like to use a URL path that includes more than 20 characters, but custom post type slugs are limited to only 20 characters.

Solution: Use the custom rewrite option in the post type editor to supply a longer URL rewrite rule.

Hi, I need help how to modify this. I found this article but I can't see the attached image from solution.



Hello, I'm attaching the same screenshot here. This shows the rewrite option panel for a custom post type where the URL rewrite option contains a slug longer than 20 characters. Hopefully this gives you the information you need.


Thanks Christian, I will try this and give you feedback.



It works, thanks Christian
