    Er, so you want http://domain.com/category/postname ?

    So if there are different categories, there would be seperate URL's for the same post? I don't know of any plugins for that. But if there is one, you would want to make sure that it put a NOINDEX Meta tag into the head of one of the posts or you would start getting duplicate content issues.

    Wordpress is by far the best blogging system I've used so far. I especially like the easy to use CMS and huge number of plugins.

    WP is fine, it should have though more control on it from the admin panel so that noobies can have limited control if they want and pro guys can have more control. Template is also an issue for a lot of noobies that just want a simple blog and they don't know where/how to buy another template. they don't care the system inside but rather care how it is outside.

    It's the same concept buddy. There is no need to correct posts.

    What I hate though is how you have to go in and edit the header file in order to change the blog posts' meta description + title. I'm not a fan of that SEO title plugin.

    My understanding of your original post was that because Blogpot.com is older, it has more backlinks hence more pagerank, therefore that page rank is passed on to blogs which are hosted on Blogspot. My correction was to point out that I assumed you meant the blogs hosted on Blogspot were older, therefore had more backlinks and hence ranked higher accordingly rather than the domain itself having more backlinks.

    5 things i like about WP:

    1. Ease of incorporating audio into blogs with plugin
    2. Ease of incorporating video into blogs with plugin
    3. Takes 5 minutes to train a client how to make a blog post
    4. The "delete all" function in the comments approval section (get a lot of spam comments)
    5. Included with most web hosting companies free so just a couple of clicks and you're ready to get started.

    Don't really have anything I dislike about wp.

    Four things I don't like about Wordpress
    1. The Valid xhtml/css links.
    2. Its' popularity has surpassed usefull & ventured into targetable.
    3. If you clear your browsers cache between postings, it costs nearly 400KB just to load the posting interface.
    4. It began silently collecting server information in a recent release.


    Five things I do like about Wordpress
    1. What
    2. it
    3. is
    4. capable
    5. of

    Ok I can understand. Nowadays search engines come first and no one even bats an eyelid for the actual *human* user using the web

    What my concern was

    Suppose if someone wants to go from

    http://www.xyz.com/category1/post1 to another post say post2 of the same category wouldn't it be nice to show the links as

    http://www.xyz.com/category1/post2

    rather than

    http://www.xyz.com/someanothercategory/post2

    That's the first thing I noticed when I first installed WP. It looks unprofessional when using WP for more commercial sites as well.

    Ah, now I see. I don't have that problem as I just remove the category from the URL. I can see how that would be annoying though.

    There are ways to completely remove the wp- prefix from everything your site visitors and/or clients can see, both in the main part of the site and in the administration panel. It just takes a little work that's all.

    It's nice to acknowledge the WordPress team for all their work though, so I wouldn't recommend doing this unless you really have to. It will also mess up your upgrade path as you will need to repeat all the changes you made whenever you upgrade.

    Couldn't agree more!

    Another thing that bugs me is the ammount of spam that isn't prevented.

    I do like the multiple categories per post, integrated tags, maybe not perfect but still nice themes.

    I read somewhere about a plugin or hack to change that, not sure where though. But it seems pointless, what purpose would it have?

    Here are *two* features I love about WordPress:

    Category Templates
    WordPress allows the developer to specify different category templates for each of your categories. I had never even considered using this feature before, but while designing a website for Nancy Redd I found myself in need of having different templates for each of the pages on the website. WordPress to the rescue! I read up on how to use category templates and my problem was solved!
    Custom Fields
    Once I learned how to use custom fields in WordPress, I could think of dozens of reasons to use them. Using custom features gives the developer a method to add addtional dynamic data to each WordPress record. For instance, the subtitle on this page is displayed using a custom field. Couple this ability with a neat plugin like Custom Fields GUI and you have the ability to add, edit and implement custom fields directly through the WordPress dashboard. Neat, eh?
