Version 7 (modified by stevec, 12 years ago) (diff)

Fixed some typos on the FullBlogPlugin page. No biggie.

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 preview release, only available for an up-to-date 0.11dev. The implemented features should work as expected, but some features are not yet completed.

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.
  • Comments for blog posts.
  • Search for blog posts and comments.
  • Admin page for basic settings.
  • 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].

Some features will not be completed before ongoing Trac context refactoring and timeline API changes are nearing completion:

  • Attachments on blog posts.
  • Posts and comments in timeline.
  • Diff between version of the post.
  • Delete post version, delete post and delete comment.
  • Fine-grained permissions - currently only 0.10 style permissions are implemented as there is no context/resource system implemented.
  • XmlRpcPlugin support.
  • Some sort of news-listing macro thing that will look nice on a project front page, or as summary for categories and author tags. Not sure yet about the details and what it should look like. Input welcome :-)

That means:

  • Use in production at your own risk as it is still a 'preview'.
  • Don't file tickets for tasks that are missing as in 'not implemented' (see list above).
  • Feedback is most welcome - see osimons to get in touch with me by mail or on the #trac channel.
