Editable Blog postSlug

Is it possible to set the Blog Post URL to be editable in the same way that slug is editable eg:

<perch:content id="slug" type="slug" for="heading" editable indelible="true">

Hello Simon,

Yes, you can set the post slug to be editable: http://forum.grabaperch.com/forum/07-30-2018-options-for-slug-for-perch-blog

Thanks Hussein,

I guess this will only work with Blog 5.6 in Perch 3? Because in Blog 5.0 in Perch 2 when editing the Slug field, it reverts back to the slug generated by the postTitle.

I do remember testing this with an older version and coming across the behaviour you are describing. Perhaps it's time for a Perch 3 upgrade!

Thanks Hussain, yes, time to update I suppose. But for me a few other Perch 3 issue to overcome. Mainly to do with Redactor customisation.
