#4 Please add automatic block of descriptive text to 5tFTW posts.
Closed: Fixed None Opened 6 years ago by mattdm.

I usually start 5tFTW posts with boilerplate like

Fedora is a big project, and it’s hard to keep up with everything. This series highlights interesting happenings in five different areas every week. It isn’t comprehensive news coverage — just quick summaries with links to each.

It would be very exciting if this were automatically added as a little box for all 5tFTW posts going forward.


Probably the easiest way to do this is for the theme to attach it to a tag or category. Only 5TFTW posts use that category, right? Or does it use a tag?

It uses a category as of right now.

I've been both tagging them and putting them into a category. I can put 'em in a post series too, if that helps. :)

Ahh, didn't know there was a tag too. Works for me. As for the post series, might be best to get Ryan to chime in on that one. It certainly would make it easier for readers to go from week to week quickly, but I'm not sure if it was designed to be used in the context of a never-ending series (we had discussed this in the Community Blog theme earlier).

Yeah the post series would probably get a bit wild for the 5tFTW, that at the post series numbers the oldest post first, so that would not work for something like this.

I just commited some changes to master, adding a simple boilerplate just under the featured image.

Just spun up v0.06 of the theme to include this feature.
