      Description

      Identical titles should be allowed for multiple blog posts, e.g. I might want to create several posts with the title "Ideas". Conflicts should be avoided by automatically prefixing each post with the date.

        I'd like to close this as "won't fix", because:

        • An article has both a wiki document name and a blog post title, which are independent. What you specify in the "create post" form is the document name, which must be unique. You can change the post title afterwards. So, this is not really a blocker bug, but a nice-to-have feature that can help the users.
        • I'd rather keep the default blog names clear, without any dates in them. This is a personal preference.
        • I don't think that two blog posts with the exact same title should be created. Names should be unique, so that users don't get confused. They might not notice the date, so they will easily assume that the article they visited last week was rewritten, and not that this is a brand new article on the same topic.

        I would agree with a different behavior: when the user tries to create a blog post with a title that's already taken, the software informs the user about it, and offers to create a different post with the same visible title, but with a postfixed document name (with a _2 at the end, then _3, and so on).

        WDYT?

        Okay, you've got a point here: I guess most people wouldn't like to remember dates in document names (i.e. URLs).

        So I agree with you: postfixed document names are the way to go.

        Do you have any timeline when this will happen?
