|Create slugified URLs for posts, potentially adding a "title" field
Following a post by @firstname.lastname@example.org:
Interesting new organizational problem: Mastodon allows for long posts, but doesn't provide a slug, title, or summary field. Tweets are small enough (for now) that the body can count as a summary, but there's not a human-readable way to ID mastodon posts right now
haha, just ids basically. for short posts the full text is fine, but really big posts need a summary or slug or something. easy enough to coerce a summary though
I loved how tumblr handled this, where posts got a slug title from the body OR slugged a title you gave it if you filled out the optional title field
oo like for linking? or for being able to skim a list of posts?
exactly. Linking, indexes, embeds.
- Make slugified URLs for posts
- Only when requested?
- Through the post content, or a different UI element?
- Affect the underlying post ID? or just make an alias?
