Got a question about the use of permalinks. I was looking over the relevant page in the codex and it says it's best to start with a numeric field and end with postname.
I was wondering if it was possible to use http://www.site.com/postname, where postname is actually only numbers, in this case the date. Is it the numeric field itself that is important or would only numbers in the postname field itself suffice?
I am currently using http://www.site.com/year/postname, but would love to get rid of the year. On a side note, I tried this already and it cut off my ability to display comments, so there might not be much I can do about it anyway.
Thanks in advance,
