Searching posts by date


#1

Add the submission date to the URL!

Ex:

https://example.social/prismoforum/posts/2018-10/03/0000001/this_post_will_be_lost_like_tears_in_rain

Now imagine what would happen if we navigate to https://example.social/prismoforum/posts/2018-10/

We get a calendar search! :smiley:

This is one of the features that I’d love to have on reddit, but have fallen in deaf ears.

Adding permalinks to posts and date search will allow us to make archivable posts, which in turn will help preserve our online culture.

Yeah this sounds nice but - why is the date part needed in the post URL ? Can’t we just keep it simple and short (without the date) and still keep the calendar view under https://example.social/prismoforum/posts/2018-10/ ? :slight_smile:

Oh, you’re right. When I post, I tend to mix ideas so the end result is more like a stream of consciousness rather than a perfected idea.

Think of my posts as raw minerals that must be refined with careful thought :slight_smile:
