How do I configure Blosxom permalinks?
Blosxom supports two kind of permalinks: date based and file based.
Date-based permalinks look like this:
They are a link to the day's stories with an anchor to position the reader at the specific story in the page. One way to generate these is via the flavour pattern $url/$yr/$mo_num/$da#$fn
File-based permalinks look like this:
They are a link to the specific entry; nothing else will display. One way to generate these is via the flavour pattern $url$path/$fn.$flavour
blosxom.cgi, with no flavour files installed, uses date-based links. So do the flavours in the Blosxom flavour sampler. Many of us, including the author of Blosxom, prefer file-based permalinks. The joy of Blosxom is either kind of permalink will work. By editing flavour files you can easily decide which style you serve.
