Reader-first multi-user instances #157

wants to merge 21 commits into
base: develop


Copy link

commented Aug 6, 2019

This allows instance admins to configure an instance to be more about the collective Reader than the individual blogs.

To enable, edit your configuration file to have chorus = true under the [app] section. This is still very experimental, is built to solve a specific user's needs, and will likely change in drastic ways in the near future. It builds off the work in #153, #154, and #155, and will resolve T681 when finished.

Land on Blogs page when SimpleNav is enabled
This shows the Blogs page instead of the Editor to logged in users on
the `/` path when the new `simple_nav` config option is enabled.

Ref T680
Use normal nav on user pages when SimpleNav
This shows About, Reader, Log out links on backend user pages when
logged in. It also adds "New post" buttons on the backend pages and
Add `bare` editor option
This adds a new editor template that strips away most of the
customization features in the default editor and includes only:

- publishing
- editing
- viewing word count

It also restricts publishing to a user's first collection, so it's
optimized for instances that only allow users to have a single
collection and don't use Drafts.

Ref T680 T677
Display current tag on Reader
i.e. current tag a user is browsing, when they are.

Add site-wide navigation on colls when chorus = true
This adds a new config value: `chorus` that signifies an instance is
more about the Reader view than individual blogs / writers. When
enabled, user navigation will show on all pages, including About,
Reader, and Privacy (ref T680).

It also uses different collection templates that keep the instance-wide
navigation at the top of the page, instead of the author's name --
again, branded more for the collective than the individual.

Ref T681
Link hashtags to Reader when Chorus mode enabled
instead of linking to posts only on a user's blog.

Enable customizing Reader page
This makes it possible to edit the title and introductory text at the
top of the Reader view.

Ref T684
Support dedicated signup page in chorus mode
This adds a Sign Up link to site navigation and shows the
otherwise-landing page on /signup when in chorus mode.

Ref T681
Add link to Posts in user backend pages when chorus
This provides easy navigation to the logged in user's posts, since
there's no direct link to their blog otherwise.

Ref T681
Move Reader to Home link in nav when chorus
Also, refactor navigation bar template logic to be simpler and easier to

Ref T681
Add DisableDrafts option and adjust nav

hides Drafts in the non-SimpleNav menu when disabled.
