Site Admins can set up the site-wide topics, select a "featured topic," and manage blog's topic settings through the Site Admin -> Blogs -> Edit menu.

This plugin comes with 5 optional widgets (in the widgets subdirectory).

  1. BT - Topic Name - displays the name of the topic of the current blog.
  2. BT - Related Blogs - displays a linked list of other blogs in the same topic.
  3. BT - Related Posts - displays the title of the N most recent posts in the same topic as the current blog.
  4. BT - Featured Topic w/Posts - displays the N most recent posts from the "featured" topic.
  5. BT - Topics w/Posts - displays the N most recent posts from each topic, with the option of excluding selected topics.

Some of the widgets rely on theme code for topic listing pages and site listing pages, referred to as "portal links." All portal links can be turned on and off in the widgets. This plugin comes with a sample theme to help you learn how to modify your own theme to incorporate the portal elements.
