Patch to add "footer"

Reported by: df Owned by: pacopablo
Priority: high Component: TracBlogPlugin
Severity: major Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


I've made a patch that allowed a footer to be configured from the admin page, that will be automaticly added upon SavePage (and and in previews). The footer can be any WikiFormattet data, including macros. Also you can use $U for username and $D for postdate.

I made it because we are attempting to use the blog as a tool no notify other departmentens of any changes our department makes. For this we use the RSS feed, but the RSS pages from the link does not contain date or author information, which is rather importent.

An example of usage. Footer:

''Entry created by $U, on date $D.''

Another really cool thing is to use the WikiTemplatesPlugin and make an BlogFooter template. Then you can make a footer like this:


and get the text & layout included.. That way, when you change the layout in the template, it will be changed on all existing posts as well..

Changed severity and prio to get it noticed by author (naughty i know), but who reads the "trivial"'s ;)

  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Trac Release changed from 0.9 to 0.10

I actually do read the trivials :)

I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to reply to them however. Anyway, I like the idea and do plan on applying your patch. I hope to be able to apply it soon, but I've been really busy lately, so no promisses.
