I want to know how to configure Org-mode to write diary with a easy way.
I hope someone can provide his way.

Here is what I think what Org-mode write diary should have.

- [ ] *open/create* a buffer to write current day's diary quickly.
- [ ] *navigate* diary entry like viewing day entries in Calendar.
- [ ] *manage* diary files with some kind of style like (date, folder, etc).
- [ ] *search* diary content.

If you have some hints, welcome to tell me, thanks in advance.

I've kept a diary in org-mode for a year and a half now, like this -
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* July
** 26 Sat
   blah de blah, etc!
   
** 27 Sun
   not yet, it isn't here yet!
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Using that way it is auto-menued [is there such a word? I can't think of
a better way of putting it, sorry!] with "Imenu" so it is easy to go
back to a specific day. But I have found that I can't have more that 3
months worth of postings in a buffer, without things slowing down and
seeming to get slightly corrupted. So at the end of every quarter, I
transfer postings over from "2014a.org" to "2014.org", which isn't very
often used or accessed, but its available if its needed.

Hope it helps
Sharon.

That would be three main headings and about 30 sub-headings under each,
giving a total of 120 sub-headings. Do you have line-numbering on?

Yes, but I don't take much notice of it.

See my question and the answers here[1] about slow performance in Org files
when line-numbering is enabled.

Set up a capture template using a date tree. For example, this is taken
directly from section 9.1.3 of the org-mode manual:

,----
| ("j" "Journal" entry (file+datetree "~/org/journal.org")
|              "* %?\nEntered on %U\n  %i\n  %a")
`----

> - [ ] *navigate* diary entry like viewing day entries in Calendar.

Use the imenu menu or just fold and unfold the outline.

> - [ ] *manage* diary files with some kind of style like (date, folder,

Add the file to the variable "org-agenda-text-search-extra-files" and/or
set up a custom agenda view to search the file.

This org-capture looks a way, I want to try it.
But need a more advanced way, because a single file for write diary is
really not a good idea. I will be slow. (I think....)
Maybe add a logic in the org-capture template.

I'm trying this way.
