All blog renderings should be easily referable: Title w/ Link

February 25, 2007

Windows Live Spaces and many other blog sites should make the blog title be a hyperlink, so that it is simple to refer to a blog post.

It was easy on Tim’s site:

[note: I just noticed that Tim’s site (blogs.msdn.com) has those nice links when you look at several posts at one time (http://blogs.msdn.com/tims), but doesn’t have that nice link when you go to see one post.]

On my blog, currently hosted on Windows Live Spaces, I generally need to do several steps:

  • If not viewing a post specific URL, click on Permalink at the bottom of the post.
  • Copy Title and paste it to destination
  • Copy Url from Address bar
  • Select title in destination, press ctrl-k, paste in URL

Aaaaggghhh!

Has anybody wrote a set of guidelines for blog post renderings yet?

    You want permalinks – usually there is a link to a page accompanied by a persistent id that the post can be retrieved by and displayed at any later date (more or less) , or something like that.
     
    You don\’t have them in the heading on the page when you\’ve selected the individual entry because that would only redispay the same post.

    Kevin-
    Yes I want permalink…but I want the content of that <A /> to be the title of the post, not "Permalink".
    Thx, Rob

    Agreed…That\’s a bit sloppy on the part of the blog engine.
    (Sorry, I was half asleep when I read this post this morning).
