Multiple Permalinks to a given post

    I'd like to see the ability to have multiple permalinks point to a given post. For example, any of the following would one or more posts, depending on which it matched:

    /
    /%year%/
    /%year%/%monthnum%/
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/

    /%postname%/
    /%year%/%postname%/
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    /%author%/
    /%author%/%year%/
    /%author%/%year%/%monthnum%/
    /%author%/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/

    /%author%/%postname%/
    /%author%/%year%/%postname%/
    /%author%/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/
    /%author%/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    /%year%/%author%/
    /%year%/%author%/%monthnum%/
    /%year%/%author%/%monthnum%/%day%/

    /%year%/%author%/%postname%/
    /%year%/%author%/%monthnum%/%postname%/
    /%year%/%author%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    /%year%/%monthnum%/%author%/
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%author%/%day%/

    /%year%/%monthnum%/%author%/%postname%/
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%author%/%day%/%postname%/

    /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%author%/

    /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%author%/%postname%/

    The above does not consider categories, but of course should. Basically each URL path segment would be used to look up into each location. The appropriate SQL queries could actually be cached and the cache be updated when adding a new post to the database. This would provide lots of ways to navigate WordPress and make it much easier for people to find blog posts.

  2. Yeah, but it seems like it would have severe duplicate content penalties. You'd have to noindex almost all of them.

    You already know my theory on this -- there is only one permalink and all of the rest of them are lists of entries that have 0 or more results.
