T13: URLs

  1. URLs of Posts

    By .

    I'm adding a new url field to Twyne's posts. The idea is that even though a post already has its own URL, oftentimes it's useful to include posts from other websites, and the canonical URL should be used where appropriate. I'm experimenting with making the URL the actual link: so that, for example, a posts' link in on the homepage post-list will go directly to the other site, even though there's a sort-of equivalent local URL for it. Also, in the RSS feed, the link will point to the external URL. Whether this is a good idea I'm not sure, but it does feel like it'll deflect attention from the local site for posts that are really just "retweets" or placeholders for reposts.
