Doug Miller responds with a nice little tutorial on Fagerjord's approach, which places each post on its own (interlinked) page, using CSS to adapt typography as needed. By using a Tinderbox attribute, Fagerjord can adapt styles to the post as needed.
Even better, though, Tinderbox can easily use different templates for different kinds of post. You can easily set up separate HTML export templates for three prototype blog entries -- movieReview, newsFlash, and personalAdventure. Then, whenever you make a note, you choose which prototype to use. A movieReview might be boxed, with a thumbnail picture, where a personalAdventure might appear in a distinctive typeface.
- Choosing a prototype for a new note is easy; just pick a prototype from the popup menu.
- Adding a new class of posting is easy; just create a new prototype.
- Redesign is straightforward. If you want to change the way your movieReviews look, just edit the prototype and/or its export template. You don't need to revisit the old posts; they'll inherit the change automatically.
