#11156 new enhancement

Filter 'about' post from BlogList macro output

Priority: normal Component: FullBlogPlugin

Cc: Ryan J Ollos Trac Release: 1.0


The about blog post is special, and probably will often be set in the initial setup phase of a blog.

But if not, it is shown among all other posts, what is undesired IMHO. See current view in WikiStart. I do even expect it to descend according to its creation time as more blog posts appear. It should be hidden.

Just back-date the timestamp in the database?

Replying to osimons:

Just back-date the timestamp in the database?

Sure, this would be a work-around, but is the request that unreasonable?

Another alternative that I often use: a category named 'news' or 'frontpage' or whatever, and then the macro lists only a subset of posts. A 'frontpage' category also means you can easily remove old non-important news from appearing when they no longer have any relevance. Or, alternatively, have some posts stay longer than only dates originally would have allowed.

I'm still not convinced that i should filter a particular posts from all listings unconditionally. It is often the "welcome to..." blog post, and as such it is by no means trivial or unimportant.

A 'frontpage' or 'headlines' or 'news' special category that we move items in and out of as needed?
