Could the articles list use the Name rather than the URL text (or can you change the text used)?

+3 votes

The articles list for a category seems to use the text of the URL rather than the "Name" of the article.  If I had realised this before, I would have been much more careful about my initial article naming (which got used for the URL).

Is there any way I can change that now, or could the articles list use the article name rather than the URL text?


I would prefer if the articles list on the Ships category page ( simply had "Accrington (SS)" or "SS Accrington" but ideally if it used the article "Name" field it would effectively give the article author control.

Hi Wombat,

That's certainly possible. I'll put it on the to-do list.

(For those who aren't clear on what this means: Wombat is talking about how free-space profiles appear on category lists. By default they are listed by title. But we have an additional field called "Name" that lets you rename these profiles. We use that name field elsewhere and could use it instead of title on category lists.)
