Posts are available via RSS subscription. Preview is rendered on Chronicles page (limited ammount), text after metadata is shown in RSS (unlimited) and on post's page (see Tags ).

Every post must have the following metadata:

layout: "post"
title: "some title"
date: 2222-01-25
tags:
    - pleroma
preview:
  "short gist..."
url: "https://pleroma.social/link-to-news-source"
lang: en
authors: [{"name": "John Snow", "url": "https://ggg.social", "network": "socialhome"}]

Tags A tag is either "fediverse" for general articles or the title of a particular Fediverse project.

A post may have one of these tags: actorscafe, anfora, commonspub, diaspora, distbin, dokieli, dolphin, epicyon, fediblog, fediverse, forgefed, friendica, funkwhale, gancio, gnusocial, groundpolis, guppe, honk, hubzilla, kanzaki, kibou, kroeg, lemmy, mastodon, microblogpub, misskey, mobilizon, moontree, nautilus, peertube, pixelfed, pleroma, plume, prismo, p3k, reel2bits, rustodon, social (for NextCloud Social), smithereen, socialhome, writefreely, zap.

Preview Limit 150 characters - for "regular" and "wanted" posts, limit 350 characters - for "featured" post. Please, stay within the limits in preview, otherwise it gets truncated half-sentence and will be posted that way on the Chronicles front page. Not good.

Optional metadata:

wanted: true
featured: true
banner: "pic.jpg"

Wanted Add this metadata to a post that you wish to show in the upper visible part of the Chronicles page. Calls for contribution, calls for donations, calls for help should be posted with this metadata.

Featured Add this metadata to a guest post, long-form article, to show the post in a prominent part of the Chronicles page.

Wanted and featured can't be mixed and are temporary. This metadata must be removed from an older post when creating a new "featured" or "wanted" post.

Banner Required for "featured" posts only, an image wide enough to be used as a fullscreen background (~1920px), should be placed in /source/_posts/exact-post-file-name folder. Any other images used in this article may be placed there as well. See example.

Authors Required. Add an array of object(s): name you wish to be shown as the author, and one website link (preferably link to your Fediverse profile). If it's the link to your account on Fediverse, specify network name - lower case, without spaces.

Thanks!
