This patch defaults layout for pages and posts to page and post respectively. In many cases (I suspect the vast majority) this is a perfect setup. And one need not worry about putting a layout entry in each markup file. This is especially useful to me using a Gollum wiki as the source of my posts b/c I can't add YAML front matter. So having default layouts makes all the difference.

This patch shouldn't have any adverse effect on previous designs since layout was effectively a mandatory field before.

Seems useful, but it must be documented somewhere. Just a reminder :)


trans commented Dec 18, 2012

Good point. I'd be happy to document in the wiki. Just guide me to the proper place to to do so.

Well, you should put this in the documentation of the config parameters. Also, don't forget the tests, your patch probably won't get accepted without them.

Don't forget the tests :D

Great idea. +1

Hi, Sorry I am a bit confused. Did someone else submit this? Or are you still asking me to submit a new one?


parkr commented Jan 11, 2013

No, I meant one that has yet to be submitted -- by you :)
