New Slug Feature for Customizable URLs

Hi everyone!
I’ve just finished the highly requested feature for page slugs which allow for fully customizable page URLs - this feature has been rolled out as an open Beta for everybody! This feature means that instead of this: https://my-app.com/my-page/the-title-of-my-thing-1596308125537x153766304138575070, you can now display this: https://my-app.com/my-page/the-title-of-my-thing in the URL. Some important notes about this feature are:

  • Slugs are a default data field for all data types
  • Things that have the same type must have different slug values
  • Slug values should be made up of only lowercase letters, digits, and hyphens
  • Slugs, if they exist, will now show up in URLs to automatically create cleaner, shorter URLs
  • Slug values can be set through the App Data tab or through a new workflow action
  • There are two new operators you can use in conditions to help your user pick unique slugs, for example, for picking usernames

Please see the documentation for Slugs here: Using Page Slugs - Bubble Manual. Please test it out and if you have any difficulties our support team is here! Enjoy!

Not to hijack this, but I think this just broke something in my application. Came to the forms to check on the error I’m receiving all of a sudden. It co-incides exactly with this post. I’m working with URLs at this moment, so I can’t imagine it isn’t related somehow…

error_class: ClientError
args: [object Object]
message: Invalid request: see error code for details

my urls are formed as such:
https://my.application.com/page-name/path-parameter/UID

This is broken

We think we’ve identified the bug that @jon2 mentioned, so out of an abundance of caution we’re going to roll the feature back, fix, then roll back out!

Same here, all my (and my student’s) apps that were already using slugs broke.

This has been one of the most requested features guys, brilliant. No more unique ids!

Love to see you guys shipping so much these days. That’s the way to go guys. Small iterations rather than waiting months to push larger versions. This community holds its breath between releases, so thank you!

This is a great feature, the rollback is always a good plan. I’ll keep an eye out for when this is back online.
