I have been struggling with my permalink structure, as, while using
/archives/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%hour%.%minute%.%second%/, the comments don’t show (the correct address is in the address bar, ending in #comments when I click the link that’s in the feedback div, but comments aren’t shown, nor are they at the individual entry pages).
At first I thought I did something wrong, but as stated in Moving from MT to WP, one problem left, mod_rewrite?, it’s because I didn’t use either
%post_id%in the permalink structure.
In Movable Type it’s perfectly possible to have a working permalink structure solely based on timestamps. As the timestamp is truly unique, as long as you use hour, minute, second and don’t fiddle with the timestamp after the initial posting (well, and don’t post several posts in the very same second), and less likely to change than the post title, not wanting to use the id (because this might lead to problems when exporting/importing), I would very much like to see this same option in WordPress.
I’ve gone through the WP code itself, and although I’m able to locate the code concerned, and understand what is going on, unfortunately my PHP skills are too limited to try and make this work myself. Hence the feature request.
I can’t be the only one wanting to use a permalink structure exclusively based on timestamps, can I ? *rolls eyes in wonder*
