Blogging and tagging

Post by yelle » Sat Dec 29, 2012 5:06 pm

Dear webmasters

I'm a weblog started Serendipity just some things I miss.

Can I place a new article for example, only the first 50 words on the frontpage show? So the visitors so read the introduction and click 'read more' click to access the full article to read?

Can I use tags or similar for google?

These are actually the only features I miss compared to WP, otherwise very happy because I have little technical knowledge.

I hope someone wants to help me. Thanks in advance!

Yes! When you write entries, you can place the teaser starting text into the body field and the view more text into the extended body field underneath. The rest is done automatically.

Yes! Please install the freetag event plugin, via spartacus & ftp manually (http://spartacus.s9y.org/index.php?mode ... s_event_en) or via the spartacus eventplugin (already build-in, but not activated) automatically (recommended). The tags can then get created underneath the body field in the entry form. Having entry tags and a tag cloud is not a google specific thing. It is something blog specific.

You could even be happy with advanced technical knowledge!!! ;-)
