  • How did you do the "Thursday February 20" story at the top?

    Is it just a story that you keep at the top via the 'fast forward' checkbox in the story editor?

    For a second I thought maybe you had used the page plugin for the index page, but then I looked at the html src and it's index;index so it's the normal index.pl generating it.

    Interesting, too, that you're using the word count code to put '74 words in story' with each story link. I wonder if the count really matters to potential readers or not.

    It looks like the Events plugin is working nicely too. Is that what you had in mind, 2 years ago, when you originally mentioned need need for a calendar plugin on irc? I'm curious because that plugin and my calendar/events plugin ended up quite different.

    • There is just code at the top of the template for the index page that grabs an event object and displays one of its templates.

      Nope, the data you see there is generated from a table that tracks dates (and the dates can be selected from eventsadmin.pl).

      Its not page, this was done before page existed.

      You know I don't think it matters. I really prefer the links that we use on linux.com. I have been meaning for a long time to switch to using those templates.

      Nope, not at all what I had in mind two years ago (

      • multipage.... drool.... :)

        That's excellent. Now that I can use.

        The API sounds great. I guess I don't understand why it's needed though. If you can set a story_param where name='pdf' an value='/pdfs/2003/02/somefilename.pdf' wouldn't that suffice?

        • Well the question will be how to store the assets (that and you don't want getStory() dragging a pdf out of the DB everytime we select the story).

    • One other thing, the site uses a task I wrote to post its content to livejournal.com everyday via its XML/RPC protocol. Which is a rare hack :)

      • hmm. someone was just asking on irc for something like that... or maybe it was to goto blogger.com or something like that.

        are you going to release it as a plugin? :)
