How do you manage blog items?

Hi,
I just have started to use Radiant.
I really like Radiant.

One thing I am wondering is when I use it as a blog software.
I tried to put 20 articles under articles folder.
It is Okay.

When I get so many articles, like 300, in the future, how can I
manage those items?
Is there any system or plugins to handle so many items(childs) for a
parent item.

Are you speaking in terms of an administration interface or in terms of
organizing them? The archive behaviors automatically create
year/month/day archives for you and put your articles/blog posts in a
date-based URL pattern.

I guess he is speaking in terms of the admin interface. As the
entries are sorted alphabetically in the admin interface, it may get
difficult to manage hundreds of subpages.

Yes, I alredy bumped into this problem. Once you have more than a few
dozen
posts, it becomes really clumsy to change/edit/delete any given post.
Typo
(which is also built on Rails) offers a better solution for blogs
(strictly
speaking), IMO. However, the great thing about Radiant is that it is
fairly
painless to extend/edit and if you wanted to, you could create a fancy
Ajax-based Article child listing…it just takes siome work and sweat.
Having worked with many enterprise-level CMS’s I can say that Radiant
is in
its early infancy; however, I think it looks very promising from the
extensibility and simplicity point of view. Those of us who want to
extend
it and “nurture” it need to be keen to these kind of details.

Peace,

One could change the order in which they are displayed, I suppose, by
making
a modification to the Page model. On line 13, I believe, change

acts_as_tree :order => ‘virtual DESC, title ASC’

to

acts_as_tree :order => ‘virtual DESC, created_at ASC’

Then, at least, you get the newest ones first. Alternatively you could
change that to use ‘published_at’, which may be more useful depending on
the
situation.

Another solution might be to create categories sub-pages for posts, real
or
artificial, and post them in those categories.

Yes, I am saying the admin interface.
Well, sorting by the date works for now.

But I hope some one would develop the solution as Ruben suggested.
When I get more than 100 items in my system, I might try it myself. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
(I’m also excited using Radiant and want to contribute to the
community.)

Thank you.
