Requirements

one primary key like id, use utf8 strings

Installation
  • Extract the release file under models/behaviors
Usage

Add in model..

public function behaviors(){
    return array(
        'SlugBehavior' => array(
            'class' => 'application.models.behaviors.SlugBehavior',
            'slug_col' => 'slug',
            'title_col' => 'title',
            'max_slug_chars' => 125,
            'overwrite' => false
        )
    );
}

Table example:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `pages` (
    `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
    `title` varchar(125) NOT NULL,
    `slug` varchar(125) NOT NULL,
    `body` text,
    PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
    UNIQUE KEY `slug` (`slug`),
) ENGINE=InnoDB  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT=0 ;

*Aditional notes becarefull of non latin languages they need to be displayed normally with urldecode(); and take up alot of database characters as they are long like %23# etc :P
