thought index

couldn't find a thread for it, desperately needs sorting out.

So we've got:

http://libcom.org/everyday-manifesto

http://libcom.org/thought/factsheets

plus all the introductions which should probably be linked individually.

link to glossary index when we have one

latest thought forum topics

anything else?

er, random article block of course.

we could link to discussions/debates with various groups and tendencies which we have argued on as individuals but with a group line... maybe by doing one article which we keep updated.

yeah both of those good.

You mean one article with a load of links to forum discussions? I think that'd make sense.

yeah, maybe we could compile some here if we think of them. Could even C&P discussion from other forums into library entries if appropriate...

hang on, i got an idea.

we put all the intros as fact sheets.

so then all thought is one of:
- manifesto
- factsheets
- criticism

right? then we can just have blocks with random article from each?

ok so if we put things into factsheets, are we best using book outline as now, or should we just tag things as factsheets? cos book outline indexes aren't very customisable, are they? but then they'd be ok i guess...

reminder that "introductions" are to go in thought, and current intro articles to become facsheets.

book module may get huge overhaul within the next 9-18 months - which'd make it easier to theme/manage. I think we might be better off doing factsheets/thought/organise it with tags or even menus though.Have to give it some thought.

have we given it some thought yet? i can probably start on this once we figure if we're using tags or book outlines

ok so everything is to go in either everyday manifesto, factsheets or criticism parent books, with random blocks displaying an article from each yeah? i can do that

hmmm although now i wonder if we'd be best having a "currents" section, in which we put all our introductions to anarchism/council comm things, AND the critiques?

or else we can maybe put the forum debates links in an article in there and stuff to bulk it up a bit. we could put the crimethinc piece in there too i guess.

i'll wait until we've had a think, that and the random everyday manifesto block view/block i just made doesn't appear to work and i really need a maximised browser to have a chance of fixing it

i notice the criticism page is a library entry, not thought. this deliberate? cos now it won't show as random on index, say

oh right, pretty sure we shouldn't use book pages any more unless it's actually a big book. but even then i don't think we need to any more cos you can put any page in book outline now...

if you re-make as thought could you keep url as thought/criticism?

we need to change manifesto url to put thought/ in as well...

shouldn't use any teasers any more - just list views with the right fields.

i thought you were talking about this: http://libcom.org/thought/criticism confused

or did you move it to thought from library? i just created it as a top level book, it has to be a book or you can't put the articles in it via outline ...

yes you can, you just need to put the thought article into the outline first.

i changed the URL from /.library/criticism to thought/crit

to get the bg on blocks, you'll need to put #index-panels in the css id. I think, can't remember tbh but try it and let me know if not.

right i've put libertarian communism, capitalism and direct action at the top, and shuffled around the other three sections so everyday manifesto is on the left, factsheets on the right and criticism at the bottom. just need to do a forums feed for the right column, what else?

did we want a manually coded list of all the introduction factsheets too, or not any more?

hmmm, don't really like that article any more. at most it should just be part of the randomised things. but shit now it doesn't fit anywhere does it? we could re-word it into a libertarian com factsheet though maybe?

we have an auto list here:
http://libcom.org/thought/intros

I think we should have a randomised block to display one, like factsheets/manifesto/etc.

we have a randomised factsheets block in there already, though there's a pensions factsheet in with the introductions - in fact i think there's only the one non-'introduction to' factsheet atm.

that's why i stuck it at the top, could re-word it i guess, but given as we're meant to be libertarian communists and we run a website called libcom it might be better if we just updated it? i dunno, could just stick it in with the other currents i guess, certainly considering how long it would take to re-word/collectively review it ... neutral
