Hi all,

I am wondering what the state of fmt=publish option for publish is.
PagelistExplained tells me that it is planned and I could really need
this at the moment :).

What for?

Well while going through the categories documentation - especially the
nesting stuff - I thought why not use this for a Blog?

So I do a page [[Blog/2005-08-05 Bilbo Bloggins]] and add it to the
Category [[!blog-2005-08]]. Then I can easily get a list of all blogs
for the month :). However blogs usually don't list the dates, but have
the content published. Which leads me to the above question.

And of course I'd also like to have a [[!blog-2005]]-category on all
these [[!blog-2005-08]] :) - can I add that Category automagically to
the monthly categories?

I guess the fmt=publish has to be able to do some kind of recursive
publishing the page content to work for my blog idea.

Some problems still exist though:

* [[!blog-2005]] will get a fairly big page - usually blogs have some
  kind of pager (older or newer entries)
* I don't like calling the categories blog-* 
  Perhaps one should use a different CategoryGroup for Blog-Groups - or
  even better have the Categories IN the Blog-Group?
