I went with this approach as a low hanging fruit, and if it stays a
forever, for those who want it, that’s cool with me. I actually
the centrally allocated number (the id) a bonus. This is more for
the handy date/title URI, but just tweaking it a tiny bit so that the
is editable, without invalidating the permalink. As for look of the
maybe it is a tiny bit more obscure, but I didn’t really think it could
much so. Compare:
Maybe it does loose the clarity of the date then? It wouldn’t take too
work to make it
Now if someone wanted a more wiki-ish permalink scheme, it actually
pretty easy*, I just like throwing the numeric ID in there, because
looks at blog URIs as much as wiki ones, since they are more likely to
interblog than intrablog, thus will have the whole domain and all that
(from the view of a human readable resource) in the link, anyways. I
took this, http://www.notsostupid.com/blog/2006/07/07/urls-on-rails/,
re-added the id, since we already have the rest of the slug.
Thanks for the feedback.
*Hell, if there were demand, I might be tempted to design a fuller
plugin that gave you a preference of permalink schemes.
