Show “Native slug” field

The slug is a unique identifier used to distinct the posts and terms and used in the native (default) permalinks that can be overwritten by custom permalinks set-up with Permalink Manager.

The slug is assigned to the post or term after it is published and it is based on the initial post/term title. Please note that it remains unchanged even if you change the post/term title. Of course, you can still adjust the native slug in the slug editor.

The native slugs are used also in the custom permalinks generated with Permalink Manager. Please change “Slugs mode” in the plugin settings to use the actual post/terms titles instead.
Contrary to original WordPress permalinks system, Permalink Manager can also auto-update the URL whenever the title is changed.

As Permalink Manager stores the permalinks independently, you can change each of posts or terms URL addresses any way you like. It does not matter if your new permalinks contain the native slugs or not.
