Slugs are used throughout NationBuilder. They are the url address of a page. For example:
The word blog is the slug for the blog page on the Abe for Prez website. The slug is always going to be after the backslash at the end of your website's url (the address of your homepage).
In many areas of the NationBuilder control panel, slugs are used to designate or indicate pages that you might want to direct people to, or highlight in some other way.
Slugs will always default to be the name that you designate for a page, and spaces will always be marked by underscores (_). You can edit them to make them shorter and simpler. You want to do this so that they are easy to remember.
When editing a webpage, you can edit the slug from the Settings area.

Evan Leeson commented 2013-09-25 21:37:04 -0700Where can we change the underscore to a dash as the deafult? Here’s why: “The short answer is that you should use a hyphen for your SEO URLs. Google treats a hyphen as a word separator, but does not treat an underscore that way. Google treats an underscore as a word joiner — so red_sneakers is the same as redsneakers to Google. This has been confirmed directly by Google themselves, including the fact that using dashes over underscores will have a (minor) ranking benefit.”
