1. Sorry, buit I’m going to have to say no on this because the name is being reserved to link back onto the specific entry that was clicked. A future version of Connections and templates will take advantage of this to show the expanded info on the entry that was clicked. I hope that makes sense.
2. Actually this is not confusing after looking at the site. Each name is supposed to link back to the specific entry, however, there was a bug that was just fixed with the copy function. The issue is that it appears you copied entries many times and just changed the details on each new entry. Is that correct? What happened the copy function also was copying the unique slug for that specific entry rather than creating a new unique slug.Now the query will returned every entry that has what is supposed to be unique. That’s what you see it working fine for some and not others. Unfortunately, there’s not an easy fix as it can only be fixed by manually making the editing each entry using phpMyAdmin or similar tool. What you have to do is edit the slug column changing it to the name in all lower case with hyphens instead of spaces.
I hope that helps!
