Thinking about Thistle's architecture

development 1 min read

I've done a little bit more Thistle coding today, but primarily I've been considering 
the ramifications of adding static content support, and how it affects the overall architecture. 
If you're interested in Thistle, try reading my recent articles on extending blog software to support 
static content and special-cases:
  1. We Hate Blogs
  2. Blog Wiki Blog
I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts.


Anyway, as for the code-changes, there were just two things:
  • A new option: $process_cat_info.
    If enabled, the included category-info files will be processed by PHP. Opens up lots of possibilities!
  • Thistle now incorporates code from the LatestEntries module written by Alexis Drogoul.
More to come.
