Even PO news editors could benefit from a better index:

General Ideas, March 22, 2012

Renewable Technologies and our Energy Future – An Interview with Tom Murphy
Alternative Energy, March 29, 2012

Our intrepid news editors have been posting a lot of articles lately, but if you don't check in at least daily they will have scrolled off the main page and it is a pain to find what you have missed using the links at the bottom or the "Select Category" dropdown (Which takes you to the same pages as the links).

This is a major waste of volunteer effort. Most news sites make it easy for readers to access items from at least the last few days.

You just have to make the right kind of error to get that error message page. I don't know how to get there otherwise. :lol:

Each of those links points to a series of pages with 10 article abstracts per page. These are very slow to search through, even with PO's lightning fast server.

A single page listing just the titles for each month would be nice.

There is this:

http://peakoil.com/category/

Sort of clunky to use.

Thanks, that helps a bit if I have a particular search terms. I was hoping there was some sort of directory of all past news articles.

The articles themselves are still there, only if you don`t know the URL you can access them.

Example: I used the wayback machine and found this article from 2010:

http://peakoil.com/business/peak-oil-ex ... -downturn/

After a few days when I want to read a news article again, it is not there any more. Is there an archive?
Thanks NWFM
