Simple check to indicate a possible duplicate post name

JavaScript February 7, 2021


This function runs automatically, so it is not called manually. Is this incorrect?

Additional Notes

This function will color the post slug in red when it ends in a dash and number.

This can have false positives, so use judgement with this reference tool.

nebula.uniqueSlugChecker = function(){
    //Write your own code here, leave it blank, or return false.
