How to create a unique slug for a post?

When saving a post of a similar title, The CMS doesn’t automatically add a unique ID for the slug. The same slug will be saved for the new post and the old post will not be accessible anymore. Is there a way to make slugs save as a unique slug name?

Yes there is.

In your model yo can declare the slug as unique

public $rules = [
        'slug' => 'required|unique:table_name,slug',

You should look into the Sluggable trait.

This will automatically append a digit to the slug if one already exists.
