because 12345-div-span isn't always the best url
if you'd like to do this manually an HTML comment at the very start of the post
will be invisible in the post itself but show up in the slug
i did not figure this out on my own, my apologies that i didn't save the post where i saw it
oh that's very useful to know! thank you! I tried it out and it looks like there's a 15-character limit on what will get pulled into the slug.
I've started using cohost for long-form blogging, and I would really like a way to control the URL slug. I noticed that it gets set automatically once from the original headline when saving a draft, and it can't be changed later. I just tried creating a new draft with "Add Trusted Root CA certificate on Ubuntu" as the headline and <!--ubuntu-root-ca--> as the body, expecting "ubuntu-root-ca" to be used in the URL slug, but instead I got "442009-add-trusted-root-ca".
If URL slugs could be longer, and editable, then cohost becomes a really nice long-format blogging platform I could see using a lot more in the future. I've already blogged twice here, and never had a personal blog.
