Is there an archive of Peak Oil News?

Unread postby no_wuckin_ferries_mate » Tue 20 Mar 2012, 02:27:31

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

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:

There is this:

http://peakoil.com/category/

Sort of clunky to use.

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.

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.

Even PO news editors could benefit from a better index:
