CAUTION: this stuff is in an early state with at least the following TODO items:

Done issues

  1. externalize TIMESINCE tag into a plugin of its own
    done in SVN 7432
  2. get Pth to accept my patches to the HeadlinesPlugin
    see Item1015.
  3. move basic blogging css from NatSkin's BaseStyle.css into a styles.css for the BlogPlugin.
    done in SVN 7597.
  4. add datatime formfields so that postings can be imported and back-dated properly
    done in SVN 7602.
  5. propose TwistyPlugin enhancements to polish threaded comments experience (TWISTYBUTTON in addition to TWISTYHIDE/TWISTYSHOW, open up twisties using urlparams)
    done in Item1028.
  6. externalize DBQUERY tag into a plugin of its own
    done in SVN 7638, see Item1048.
  7. get arround the patch to ExtendedSelectionPlugin
  • SVN 7950: changed default groups otherwise someone could just register as MichaelDaum at a site and gain access (similiar changes were made to standard TWikiGroups a while back)
  • add more tooltips, like "permalink to blabla" done in SVN 8558
  • Rss feeds for (a) postings, (b) comments, (a)+(b) combined like it is now. done in SVN 8792
  • Have Rss feeds per posting. done in SVN 8792
  • display headlines in WebChanges

Discarded issues

  1. running multiple blog webs without redundant TopicFunctions but allow to have private once that overwrite global once (extend FindElseWherePlugin to find INCLUDES elsewhere???)
  2. make a nicer WebTopicList that resembles the original one

Outstanding issues and ideas

  1. Generat a better Rss headline for comments like: Mr. FooBar commented on "My recent flatulence".
  2. Have mail notifications per posting activated by a checkbox option
  3. docu docu docu
  4. ease installation (see Item884)
  5. add trackback, pingback and technorati connectivity
  6. Followups or Parts: link blog entries that are a continuation of a longer story
  7. add hierarchical SubjectCategories by adding an IS-A formfield to link SubjectCategories.
  8. better support for multiple blogs on the same site: add a page that renders the latest postings in a set of blogs
  9. Still, installing a new blog is too complicated. Top notch would be an application specific install wizard. Installing a new web right now is done by copying the _BlogPlugin template web and thus producing redudant copies of the TopicFunctions. I'd like to have it done using soft-links optionally that point to the _BlogPlugin implementation. If someone likes to "overwrite" a TopicFunction he can do so by removing the link and replace it with a custom topic of the same name.
