    Is it possible to have permalinks direct to the requested post as displayed on the main page, rather than a dedicated single post page?

    The advantage would be a lowering of the threshold for new visitors to explore different posts. Rather than clicking to get to the main page or clicking the "next post" links, all the visitor would need to do is scroll. I imagine this would greatly increase visit times and the ability to familiarize visitors with your site, thus increasing return visitors.

    To work, I assume it would require pop-up comments (to replace the only other function of the dedicated permalink pages). I assume there would need to be a special handling of accessing archived posts, maybe displaying in the context of the archived week or month surrounding the requested post.

    Is there a plug-in or other solution out there that does this? If not, how would I go about implementing this concept?

    Don't count on me:) whoever wants to make me to scroll on a mile long page... isn't my friend.
    However, to understand which templates are used for different views, please read http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy from the Codex.

    I assumed the browser would automatically open to the requested post, scrolling up or down from there would be purely optional.

    The model would be Hugh Hewitt or RadioBlogger. But their permalink structure falls apart after the post is archived off the main page. They also don't have comments activated.
