Restructured the directories in the Radio@UofT site to pull the articles out of the daily archiving scheme and goup them together in a new directory of their own ('/uoftRadio/'). This made the links much more intelligible, and greatly simplified the code. I'd recommend the same strategy to anyone: if you want to use the story feature to write a series of articles on a single topic (like a guide, or a FAQ, etc), and its not important to show the day each article is posted on, then its much better to create a separate subdirectory within the '/stories/' directory to hold them all together. The only down-side to this approach is that it makes editing your stories through the browser interface more difficult (i.e. you have to get at them through the 'Folders' menu, not the 'Stories' menu). But I prefer to use a text editor to edit stories anyway. If you like to code for yourself, a nice text editor like BBedit can be quicker and more responsive. Then all you do is hit save, and Radio renders and upstreams the file.
