Use blog title for URL

Currently blog article's URL is numeric based. This makes it unreadable for people who you share the link with and this is not good from SEO point of you. The URL has to use blog title.

    Can't believe it is 2019 and the Wild Apricot app can't handle a basic thing like having blog posts where you can modify the URL and its not just numeric. The numeric URLs are completely useless for SEO. You already have the function to modify the URL on regular pages so why cant you just add this to the blog pages??? Your users have been asking for this since 2016!!!!

    It's not just on blogs that this is an SEO issue. Not being able to change the event URL (which is where 70% of our traffic comes from) is killing our SEO.

    The number is meaningless to everyone - even our staff who use the system every day, have to search via the back end, link or the events page for a particular event instead of being able to type in the event name.

    I would add that the same problem exists for the discussion forums. We have a lot of great content in our blogs and forums but I'm not sure they are getting the search engine attention they deserve! (Is there a workaround?)

    Blogs need custom titles and ability to add meta tags for SEO
