The main way to make your blog structure searchable at present is to include InChIs in your post. But how do you make it substructure searchable? How do you associate analytical data?

I love reading Paul Docherty’s TotallySynthetic.com blog so I took advantage of his Creative Commons license and posted one of his entries here to show what is feasible using our new rich text format support in the description box. Literally it took 2 minutes work…searched the structure by the name Trichodermadide B, validated it against drawing that Paul had on his blog and pasted his blog post onto ChemSPider.

You can see it here in the Description Section…

One thing we are not doing is hosting the comments but the post does point back to the original post here: “From the TotallySynthetic.com Blogpost on Trichodermamide B by Paul Docherty

    I Wikified and ChemSpiderified the Rich Text ChemSpider entry by linking to some Wikipedia articles and ChemSpider compounds.

    Two questions.
    - Is there a version history, or what happens, if someone is messing-up or spamming a certain entry?
    - Can I put pages on my watchlist seeing when others change them?

    Finally, is Paul’s blog now sub-structure searchable? Well, it links back via ChemSpider, but how does Paul now link to ChemSpider? Only via the comments?
    If there would be a version history, and he would have added this entry, then people could see it in his ChemSpider profile, like they can for Wikipedia edits.
