I realise that this is quite a major project, but I'd like you folks to let me know if what i'm trying is feasible, and if so, maybe point me in the right direction:
What I'm after is a modification that will allow my home page to show a kind of 'one post a day' aggregation format where all posts from the latest day on which there are any posts are shown in order, and the relevant comments are in between those posts. However, I'd like the add comment box to only show up after the last post of that day, with no facility to add comments to preceeding posts, and the date to only show up on the first post of the day (i.e. at the top). To illustrate, what I want is something that looks something like this:
But that isn't an awful hack that involves using your comments system to make posts. I wouldn't mind doing that (it's actually quite nice) except that I can't scrape rss into a comment, I can't comment via email, and it would make migration a complete chore.
