Contributed plugins 1.2.2 released

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

This is the third release of the contributed plugins pack for PyBlosxom 1.2.

Here's the list of changes between contributed pack 1.2.1 and 1.2.2:


  • New CHANGELOG.txt file which describes the changes between this version and the last as well as compatability and behavior issues.

  • New README.txt file which describes what's in the contributed plugins pack, where you can find it, and various other things about the contributed plugins pack.


  • Matej updated genericwiki so that it works as an entryparser as well as a preformatter. Will fixed up the documentation. genericwiki was moved from the preformatter directory to the entryparser directory. Thanks Matej!


  • Now has two new properites "category_start" which gets printed once before printing the category list and "category_finish" which gets printed once after printing the category list. Additionally, the default values for "category_begin" and "category_end" were fixed. This makes the default output for pycategories (x)html compliant. Thanks Joseph!


  • comments no longer shows comments by default! In order to view comments for a given entry, you must append "showcomments=yes" to the querystring. THIS IS NOT A BACKWARDS-COMPATIBLE CHANGE! Thanks David!

  • comments no longer has documentation for the unused comments-rejected-words property.

  • comments no longer requires the email field.

  • all the flavour templates for the comments plugin have been updated.

  • We cleaned up the comment error messages so they're useful to the user. Thanks Nathaniel!


  • w3cdate plugin now provides $w3cdate in head and foot templates. It no longer requires PyXML. Thanks to Steven and Matej!

Thanks to Steven, David, Joseph, Matej, and Nathaniel for their contributions and help.
