One of the things I liked with Wordpress was the post structure. The full URL for a post being:
The date representation allows filtering by (parts of) the date. I wanted to keep this after migrating to Drupal 7. Implementing this on Drupal 7 needs configuration of 2 parts: a content type and a view. We configure the URL for the content type to include the date in the correct format. The view is configured to allow the visitor to see an overview of the posts, filtered by (parts of) the date.
