BlogPackage Clean Up Hit List

This page is for cataloging the problems of the blog package and devising their solutions

Created by: Anonymous, Last modification: 05 Mar 2007 (01:02 UTC) by Will

Activity

There is some feature called activity which is a magic number that tries to represent "activity" on a blog. This was something started in tikiwiki but not finished before the port to bitweaver. We should either remove it from the schema or figure out what the feature was meant to be.

Rankings

Not dissimilar to activity, rankings attempts to rate the activity of a blog. There are currently two rankings "latest posts" which is silly since we have a page for that and "most visited blog" There are numerous interesting queries which could be added that are missing like most blog posts, authors with most posts, authors with most reads, blog with most posts, posts with most reads, etc... These should be easy to add to rankings.php

Create Blog Confusing

Some users find the create blog page confusing. We should add a help at the top that explains they are creating a blog not a post.

Categories in blogs

There is some old crusty CATEGORIES stuff in blogs that should be removed.
DONE: All Categories stuff has been commented out of blogs. It should be ok as service connections are in place.

... and now for some wishful thinking ...

API support for desktop editors

Support for ATOM or similar API's so desktop editors like ecto or Qumana can be used.
