This is the plugin we are using for the top page of this site: http://gsl-nagoya-u.net/
The plugin allows us to maintain news items via a WebDAV connection to a directory on the webserver. Draft items that are prefixed with "X" show up in a /preview/index.html view of the top page (no security restrictions), and show in the default view when renamed to remove the X. It's a simple workflow built from simple tools that will allow us to escape from the inevitable upgrade-chasing that comes with a more complex system.
I've tried to document the plugin as clearly as I could. MIT licensing is fine.
Useful for top page news and collaborative news release workflows.
Updates for the newslists plugin.
Thanks! I'll look over it and test it asap, then add it to the plugin directory
Fix fatal bug in previewing code.
We're running this in production now. The last changeset above fixes an error that was not picked up by the plugin tests.
I'm going to add this to the new repo.
Great, thanks! It's still ticking over nicely for us here.
Good to know :-) If you want to keep your git username attached to it, you can do the pull request with the file to the new repo. - https://github.com/pyblosxom/plugins.git . Otherwise, I'll happily add it.
