Antville Macros

<% imagelist %>

This macro takes a defineable number of images out of the image pool (beginning with the latest one) and displays them as a list, where each item either appears as fullsize-image or thumbnail (which itselft can link to the fullsize-image either in the same browser window or in a popup). To choose what the macro should display use the attribute as

<% imagelist as="popup" %>
<% imagelist as="thumbnail" %>

Omitting as will result in a list of fullsize images. If you choose "popup" or "thumbnail" and one of the images in the imagepool doesn't contain a thumbnail (i.e. because the image-width is smaller than 100px) the macro will ignore the image and proceed with the next one having a thumbnail. Similar to the ubiquitous macro-attributes "prefix" and "suffix" you can also define itemprefix and itemsuffix which will be places before and after each image in the list.

<% imagelist as="popup" itemsuffix="<br />" %>

You can also use the attribute linkto which will force the macro to link every item to the URL you specified. And of course you can limit the number of items:

<% imagelist limit="1" prefix="this is my newest one:" linkto="" %>

... Link (1 comment) ... Comment

<% topiclist %>

This macro displays all topics of your weblog as links to themselves. Besides the ubiquitous macro-attributes "prefix" and "suffix" you can also define itemprefix and itemsuffix that will be placed before and after each topic. So it's easy to generate an unordered list of topics:

<% topiclist itemprefix="<li>" itemsuffix="</li>" %>

... Link (5 comments) ... Comment

<% site.monthlist %>

This macro displays the archive of your weblog as a list of months. Every item will appear as link to the first story of the appropriate month. By using the attribute format you can change the appearance of the items, eg.

<% site.monthlist format="MMMM yyyy" %>

This will give you each month as "April 2002", "May 2002" (this is the default formatting). The language used by this macro is depending on the language you defined in the preferences of your weblog.

Besides the ubiquitous macro-attributes "prefix" and "suffix" you can define "itemprefix" and "itemsuffix" which are placed before and after each item, so you can eg. construct a typical unordered html-list:

<% site.monthlist itemprefix="<li>" itemsuffix="</li>" %>

With the last optional attribute, limit, you can define the number of months that should appear in your list.

Of course this macro will only display anything if the weblog contains at least one story (which is online) plus the archive is enabled in the preferences.

... Link (3 comments) ... Comment

<% site.history %>

(a.k.a. "recently modified"-list) This macro displays a defineable number of stories and comments that have changed in the recent history of your weblog. To change the number of items in the list use the option "show", eg.:

<% site.history limit="10" %>

will give you a list of the 10 most recent modified stories or comments of your weblog.

... Link (9 comments) ... Comment

<% site.age %>

This macro calculates the number of days that have passed by since a weblog was created (it doesn't matter how long the weblog has been offline).

... Link (2 comments) ... Comment
