Hi, I'm wanting to use the Custom Permalinks plugin again, but my problem with it is it automatically gives every entry a prefix of /permalink. The biggest issue with this is if I need to go back and edit a previously published post, it will change the URL unless I remember to edit that too. It also would be easier if I didn't have to change the prefix manually on every new post.

My question is, is there a way I can edit this in the plugin? Playing around, I found I could change 'permalink' here to get the result I wanted:

Code: Select all
? $serendipity['serendipityHTTPPath'] . 'permalink/' . serendipity_makeFilename($title) . '.html'

Just wanted to check if that was safe to do, and if I needed to change anything else.

I also forgot this plugin has a problem where if I use a custom URL, the comments section no longer shows up. Any way to fix this?

Hm, usually it should only show you the /permalink/ path, when the current value could not be found. You shouldn't need to set it time and again.

Can you check if your serendipity_entryproperties database table exists? Check if for a given blog entry ID you can see the permalink value in there with a tool like phpMyAdmin (if you don't know how to do that, report back)

The line you found affects that default permalink, which you could change at that place, yes. Thinking about this, of course it would make sense to be able to configure a default.

About not showing comments, it could be that your template is not detecting the output of the plugin as a "full page" for the blog entry. Which serendipity version and which template are you using?

Sorry, forgot to get back to this and just wanted to say I appreciate your reply. I found I don't need the plugin right now but next time I'm playing with it, I'll get back to your suggestions/questions.
