Hello again, I have been very busy lately, but now I'm starting to get around to building my blog/site. One features/request that I haven't seen mentioned much is "tagging". I'd like to create a taxonomy of keywords, where each page can have one or more of these tags. Is something like this available as an extension to Mental, or is it possible to use an existing, more general extension or feature to do this? The second question is more common, but I haven't found a comprehensive answer: Are there plans for a media repository for Radiant? I've seen the Mephisto approach, which seems nice. Would it be possible to use the same code? Another approach would be to allow simple attachments to pages in some way, and having access to the list of attachments as a Radiant tag? Is there an extension that does this, or are there any plans to create one. I am more than willing to help out coding extensions, if you are willing to put up with my inane questions. And yes, I know Mephisto has all this. Maybe I'm flogging a dead horse holding on to my choice of Radiant? Best regards, Martin O. firstname.lastname@example.org

If all you want to do is blog and need tags, Mephisto is probably a better choice at the moment. The 0.7 release (0.6 RC1 is expected this weekend) will include better blogging support, including wholly new commenting and tagging extensions. Sean

Seans will give you better performance (as it hands over asset control to the web server), whereas mine will give you better image manipulation and a different url structure. I'm working on the performance issues in my implementation, but it will never be as fast as sean's. It's probably safe to say at this point that neither of the extensions is in a finalised state, but they're both usable. Have a look through the mailing list archives for january for more discussion.
