Posts v Pages

Posts, at once. Pages, evermore.

A typical post permalink contains some date information (e.g. /2023/07/19/kt). The text slug can be speakable (e.g. /2023/07/19/creative-post-title).

An additional undated permalink (e.g. /fnord) can be given to a post for easier typing/speaking.

If an undated permalink is given to a post that also changes significantly that post should be considered a page.

    • WebSub subscription of etherpad changesets to propagate to remote etherpads?

Each update is added to updated.

Etherpad stores a fine-grained change history.
