Slugger+ for WordPress and MarsEdit

Allows you to specify a post slug from within MarsEdit

Differences between Slugger and Slugger+

This plugin is a modification of Colin Devroe's awesome Slugger plugin. The basic difference is that mine removes the slug-specifying text during the initial XML-RPC transaction, thereby keeping your post content clean and obviating the need to filter for the slug-specifying text each time the post is accessed. (For a bit more technical information, please see my post announcing the plugin.)

Installation and Implementation

  1. Unzip the plugin file into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin from the WordPress admin panel.
  3. When writing a post from within MarsEdit, insert into the post text of the form: [slug]slug-to-use[/slug].
