"Financial Times website and links"
   I'm finding the new FT site rather painful - there is this feeling that there is lots of stuff in there but its presentation seems clumsy at times and getting links out that others can use is problematic. Before I spend more time seeing what I can do I wanted to see if others have the sleuthing of dance and ballet links 'cracked' and can get us there sooner.

I would like to use the Advanced Search - because it brings up such a diversity of links and you can date limit the search. Clicking on a (free) link obviously brings up the piece - but it brings it up in a standard page URL so that if you gave somebody else that URL they would not see that page. I can't immediately see a way of getting behind this wall. Hope this makes sense and has anybody cracked it?

The simple search on the opening page seems to reveal links that are proper URL's - but finding which are new links and which old is infuriating because of the lack of date information in the FT.com part of the archive and the Global archive chucks up so many links and arranged in the order it thinks relevant rather than date order.

As a process what I want, and many want, is just to unearth new links for the last week or so - perhaps since we last looked in. But I can't seem to achieve that with any particularly repeatable ease... and get out useful URL's.
