#11157 closed Cleanup/optimization (fixed)

Allow stopwords in admin javascript URLify.

The javascript used by the admin to autogenerate slugs, URLify() in, removes certain words from the string before converting spaces to dashes. But django.template.defaultfilters.slugify leaves all words intact.

eg 'Working at home' -> 'working-home' using the admin js and 'working-at-home' using slugify.

Personally I prefer the latter but, whichever way round, the two filters ought to behave the same, as their functionality is meant to be interchangeable.

Where does it say their functionality is meant to be interchangeable? I specifically remember Malcolm saying they weren't when closing a similar issue a long time back.

After discussion on the mailing list (!msg/django-developers/9ayU7fTuuAM/tBDLzV5-DQAJ ) in favour of removing the english stopwords behaviour from the JavaScript slugify implementation, I'm reopening this.

The discussion originally created ticket #31511 that was closed as a duplicate of this one.

Scott Cranfill and Andy Chosak have a PR that was closed on #31511 that needs retargetting against this ticket and current master. ( )
