Version 12 (modified by Odd Simon Simonsen, 10 years ago) (diff)

The (full)blog plugin should now be ready for production use. Feature list and various information updated to present status.

Self-contained Blog plugin


This plugin provides a project Blog, but unlike TracBlogPlugin and SimpleBlogPlugin it does not use Wiki pages to store the content. It has no dependencies on other plugins.

This is a beta production-ready release, available for an up-to-date 0.11dev. The implemented features should work as expected.

Basic features are:

  • Create, edit and view blog posts under a new 'Blog' menu.
  • Browse post by month, category and author + and Archive page for all posts.
  • Attachments on blog posts.
  • Comments for blog posts.
  • Posts and comments in Timeline / RSS.
  • Search for blog posts and comments.
  • Admin page for basic settings and informational text in sidebar.
  • Support for Trac fine-grained permissions security checks (based on resource / realm).
  • Special handling of a post named 'about'.
  • Area in sidebar for information text, blogroll, links and similar.
  • Link provider, like [blog:this_is_my_post] and [blog:category/trac] and [blog:2007/10].
  • Delete post version, delete post and delete comment.
  • A tags provider for TagsPlugin if plugin is available.
  • A [[BlogList]] news-listing macro with various display modes for pulling blog posts into the wiki.

Some planned features are not yet done:

Feedback is most welcome - see osimons to get in touch with me by mail or on the #trac channel.
