I’m working on a rebuild of a site and trying to keep the new URL’s the same as the old ones. The old ones just use the post name but they appear to be limited to a certain number of characters, for example: www.example.com/news/boston-meets-with-life-sciences-economic-development-organization-from-
The new URL generated by WordPress looks like this: www.example.com/news/boston-meets-with-life-sciences-economic-development-organization-from-europe/
I know I can edit the permalink manually via the post editor, but as there are a lot of posts involved then I’m wondering if there’s a way to limit the URL (to 100 characters for example) automatically?
Any nudge in the right direction would be much appreciated!
