#2 Add "Post series" enhancement from Fedora Magazine
Opened 4 years ago by jflory7. Modified 2 years ago

As briefly mentioned in the 2016-01-14 Fedora Magazine meeting, it would be useful if the Community Blog was also able to create post series similar to the way that the Fedora Magazine does so, as with the systemd series.


OKies, there are a few issues with this one, first up is that there is no sidebar available in the current communityblog theme, so we might need to put this in a box similar to the newly added aithpor bio section.

secondly, what kinds of post series are you thinking of having for this? open ended ones, or ones with say < 10 posts. -- just wanting to know so we can make how it presents look okay

I think that might be a good fit for it. Might be difficult to place it elsewhere. I'd think it would be better towards the top, but it's probably not as big of a deal as I think it is.

I asked Remy about this, and we both thought a smaller set of post series would make more sense as compared to an infinitely on-going post series. We tried to think up some use cases for a post series like the latter but nothing came to mind.

I think having it for a fixed number over a brief period of time makes the most sense, in my opinion.

As a retrospective, definitely series under ten posts is what I'd expect. I don't think we'd ever have a long-running series like the HDYF series on the Magazine. I see this feature being especially helpful for Elections interviews.
