I need random (and unique) alphanumeric permalinks. I've looked at several plugins but they all seem to do some form of redirection to a longer URL. That's not what I want, I want the permalink to be changed.
Basically, I'm wanting URLs like bit.ly or 9gag.com.
I've looked, but came up empty in my searches - does a plugin exist that does this? If not, could someone point me into the right direction as to how I might accomplish it? I'm pretty self sufficient in PHP but I'm not very familiar with WordPress yet.
The easiest way I could think of is something like
add_filter("post_slug", md5(rand())) (if that were actually valid code). Obviously, I'd have to check for duplicate slugs and what not...
Honestly, what I'd much rather prefer is something like:
example.com/prefix/hf434g5ay/postname In that the
/prefix/alphanumeric-key is required but postname is used for SEO.
