In WordPress, a “post slug” is a user-friendly and search engine friendly URL for a post. It is the part of the URL that comes after your domain name and includes only lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens.

For example, if you have a post titled “10 Tips for Better Sleep”, the default post slug would be “10-tips-for-better-sleep”. You can edit the post slug when creating or editing a post to make it more descriptive and shorter.

Having a descriptive post slug can help both your readers and search engines understand what your post is about. A well-crafted post slug can also help improve your search engine optimization (SEO) by including keywords relevant to your content.

To edit the post slug in WordPress, go to the post editor and click on the “Edit” button next to the permalink under the post title. From there, you can change the post slug to whatever you like, as long as it follows the rules mentioned above.

It is important to note that changing the post slug can affect your post’s URL and may result in broken links if you have already shared the original URL elsewhere.
