Radiant for blogs

Hi!,

 I would like to know your experiences with Radiant for a blog.  I 

have
taken a look to the blog related extensions available, and my feeling is
that they are too immature.

 Does anyone of you own a blog powered by Radiant?

Aitor,

I’m making mine live at the moment now I’ve finally got my hosting
sorted out. I’ve got a range of extensions I’ve made to make it work
that I’ll be making available once it’s all finished, hopefully by
the end of this week. I’ll post to the list once it’s done.

Regards,

Glenn

Looking forward to it!

I think everyone’s going to be interested to see what you’ve come up
with.

Yes. But it’s not a blog in the sense where it doesn’t accept
comments. I like it that way - it’s my personal space, not my reader’s
personal space :slight_smile:

Very classy and clean. How are you doing dated archives? By parsing
parent-child URLs?

Very interesting, thanks.

Thanks! I’m using the Archive Month behavior from Radiant (still
running 0.5.2 since I’m too lazy to do the work required to upgrade my
extension that drives the downloadable files section).

For example, the monthly archive has a page title of %B %Y and has a
single snippet in it together with the Archive Month behavior.

<r:archive:children order=“desc”>


Are behaviors still in Radiant? I haven’t really kept up with recent
developments, what has changed (major changes) since 0.5.2?

Any plan to release your templates publicly? :wink:

Also, in the footer (Archives section header, followed by a list of
dates in which articles were published), I collect the old articles
into a dated list as below.

Fortunately for all interested, someone asked for them earlier this
year, and I extracted my site layout and structure (minus parts for
the Mailer page, which I never got to work reliably).

You can find it at http://sohne.net/files/radiant-hemingway-theme.zip

  • patches and improvements are most welcome!

Thanks a lot! You did a great job adapting the hemingway theme to
Radiant.

Thanks for the info. This is going to help me out a lot!
