Add-On Type(s)



In ExpressionEngine’s version 1.6.5 url_title creation was modified to allow dashes, underscores, and periods regardless of the separator preference, and to allow uppercase characters.

For some projects pre-1.6.5 method of automatic url_title creation suits better, for yet another projects even more control over url_title creation is needed.

The extension URL Title Symbols allows you to choose if you want or not want in url_titles

  1. to allow dashes regardless of separator preference;
  2. to allow underscores regardless of separator preference;
  3. to allow periods;
  4. to allow uppercase letters;
