Feature Proposal: It would be great to be able to have permanent links


A lot of blogs and news websites have a "permalink feature", which allows a person to link to a specific entry. WikiNames are great, but since pages can be renamed, those don't serve as permanent links

Description and Documentation

Presumably what's needed is a mapping of a small number (ala TinyURL) and a Web.Topic which would track renames and such.


Impact and Available Solutions

Nice proposal, congrats Meredith. Peter proposed today a new PluginHandlerForContentMove with which someone could possibly enhance the AliasPlugin to be able to reroute Permalinks, where the aliases are kept up-to-date by that Handler, or something.

Second possible solution for this problem (which I proposed on multiple occasions wink ) is to decouple the topic name from the internal topic representation (unique, unchangeable ID), which could be used for providing permalinks.
