Eh... both. Right now, blog entries are stored in pages named by
date. So an entry posted today would be stored in a wiki page named
20051214. If, however, you post more than one entry per day, the
newer entries are prepended onto the current page.
A number of people have said they don't like this, so I may change it.
Especially if it gains me so much flexibility by compatability with
The question is how to do it? Do I append another number onto the
entry (20051214 becomes 2005121400, 2005121401, ...)? Saving pages by
date already reduces the effectiveness of wiki links anyway, since
authors have to reference pages in a cryptic date format, I fear this
will make it that much worse.
Suggestions (re: Page storage, was Kind-of Blog 1.1 released?)
