    I have the permalink structured as date and name based.
    I know I can change this to archives and id or custom permalink structures.

    But I'm wondering is it possible to have dual permalink? I mean.. one post can be accessed as data and name based as well a id based?

    Is it already there?

    You would have to set up a second row within teh database I would think. Probably have to do some rewriting of the software.

    I do know that the normal permalink (the /?=38 or whatever it is) will work when it's setup for one of the other methods.

    Accessing by date format also seems to work as well, granted it might just be for categories.

    That would be the Archive listing. Example:

    Dr Mike,

    No there is no dual permanlink. I mean if you have the permalink setup as date and name based, you can edit the post using ID but not access it to view using any other link structurs.

    No I don't have plans to rewrite the application ;)

    Ok I found out. In addition to any format of Permalink you chose with WordPressMU, there is another way to view the same post.

    http://yourdomain.com/?p=POST_ID

    where POST_ID is the ID number of the post you are trying to view.
