I would like future entries on my site to automatically create the URL titles with dashes-as-separators instead_of_the_default_underscores. I found the setting in Admin > Channel Administration > Global Preferences > Word Separator for URL Titles. There’s a simple switch that you can toggle between underscores and dashes.
Now before I change this, I’m wondering about what this will affect. Will it only alter auto-generated URL titles for entries created within the control panel? Will it alter any behaviour of file paths on the server?
I found this article on EllisLab’s docs that says:
When creating an entry in the PUBLISH page, if you do not manually enter a “URL Title” then the system will automatically create one based on the entry Title. This preference determines whether underscore characters (_) or dashes (-) should be used when automatically creating the URL Title.
Basically what I’m wondering, is, how can I confirm (prove) that nothing else will be altered before changing this setting?
