I have an idea about how to generate an index page, but I haven't had time to work out the details. Instead, since it isn't much work, I will add entries by hand to an index page. I don't have an index page right now because it isn't useful for my students. Actually, my site isn't a blog, it is for the classes I teach. I post class notes, class audio, and other items for each class. What I like about using my own site for teaching is that students don't need to log into a learning management system to get the lessons. I've also designed the site so that it works well on mobile devices (which is why the design is very simple). Below is a link to the site I used for one of my courses last semester and a link to a page containing some templates and notes for things I didn't use last semester but might use in the future. I don't have my source code posted anywhere yet, but I'm thinking about setting up a Git repository somewhere as soon as I get a better grasp of Git. Well, I'm also not sure if anyone else cares about such simple code. http://srandby.org/2017-1/356-001/home.html http://srandby.org/lesson-examples/lessons.html Org is amazing. I don't know elisp, I'm certainly not an advanced user of Emacs, and I don't know how to do that really sophisticated Org stuff that others talk about on this list, but I can make a functional web site with Org without trouble by using the basic export functions. Adding new pages, editing old pages, and updating is trivial. I know a lot of people who use Markdown and static site generators, but Org is much better for my purposes. And I can use it for many other things too. Sorry for this unnecessary rant, but I just love Org. Scott > > - John > >
