@colinwalker Nice! I'm not much of fan of the date thingy and trialed a similar format. Sadly that messed up all kinds of things in unexpected places, also I figured in the process that it is occasionally convenient to see the publish date in the adress bar. Eventually I switched it back. Still don't know whether it was wise or not.
@colinwalker Totally agree on that. I had the format $category/post title Which looked nice even when the post title is just a random number. But that caused all kinds of pain when a post had like two categories or such. Bizarrely I had Twitter embeds disappearing and changed to embedded WordPress posts.
