LJ named posts vs numbered *more*

Title
LJ named posts vs numbered *more*

Short, concise description of the idea
It'd be nice if you could specify other document names in the LJ namespace of your account instead of ####.

In addition, it would be nice if the display processor would parse out Wiki like syntax to reference these.

Full description of the idea
It'd be nice if you could specify other document names in the LJ namespace of your account instead of ####.

In addition, it would be nice if the display processor would parse out Wiki like syntax. This would allow referencing past posts of signifigance without having to find the post so long as it was properly named in the past.

This could be done manually through setting memories, and searching, etc. but a WikiWiki like syntax would be more useful.

Something similar to <lj-wiki name="MyFavoriteDay">

Or maybe, if the concept of "wiki" might bring about too much unwanted traffic, calling it "vanity named posts for paid members" or such to allow you to assign a name on a post, though it would still be nice to be able to pre-name it, and then if you select the link, it brings you to an update full with the vanity name pre-filled.

An ordered list of benefits


  • convenience of refering to past posts
  • organization of ideas

An ordered list of problems/issues involved


  • Potential for heavy use if allowed for free members
  • Requires modification to LJ code
  • Requires interest by coders

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation


  • Should be pretty self explanatory from above.
