structured blogging/ structured content types--reviews, external editor, etc

  1. Inactive

    I need the ability to create different kinds of posts: event, review, diary, poem, photolog, recipe, etc.

    Plus, I'd like the ability to use an external editor when possible. This may be less of a feature request for wordpress than the external blog editors which exist right now. I want to create semantically more meaningful content, and I need a desktop client that can do that.

    I am not interested in creating formatted html; rather I want to create custom tags for a dtd which can be processed (and styled) on the server. (i.e., "ingredient", "instruction" etc for my recipe post type. For my purposes, the posts are more useful as xml than html. That is a use case which blogging software doesn't seem suited for.

    I would think extensive support for different microformats might do the trick. There is brainstorming on microformat for recipes going on here: http://microformats.org/wiki/recipe-brainstorming

    "That is a use case which blogging software doesn't seem suited for."

    Then why are you trying to use blogging software for it?

    kccricket has nailed it. I smell a plugin which utilises custom fields, not a change to the core.

  5. The feature requested here is a simple task for my Enzymes plugin, but PHP experience is needed for building a template for processing a custom field's content.

    I published an article (http://www.mondotondo.com/aercolino/noteslog/?p=143) that shows how to write an Enzymes template for finding all the languages used in a web page whose code is inside a custom field. (used for syntax highlighting)

    So, if your template.php is able to interpret the type of the content of a structured-field and produce a styled output accordingly, all you have to do to show the styled content is to write
    {[.structured-field /template.php]}
    exactly where you want that content to appear, inside the flow of the post or page.

    actually, not exactly custom fields, but pages defined as templates (the Mediawiki way?); plugin stuff, anyway (but interesting idea)

  7. Thanks m0n5t3r, I think I understand better now :-)

    It could be done using Enzymes. In fact my plugin accepts as a special case a * to mean all the content of a post.

    So the solution could be this:
    --1: write a post or a page (say it's id is 123) with all the XML markup you want and make it private so that it won't show up as usual
    --2: write another post or a page whose only content is {[123.* /template.php]}

    "That's all folks"

    what happened to structuredblogging.org? The site seema out of date, the wiki is not there. Then I downloaded the plugin and it does everything you guys request here. (except for Enzyme stuff, which can be added using that plugin)
