Just a small status update on the new site.
I _think_ the new infrastructure is done. I haven't had to do any further
tweaks to it so far, and it appears that the functionality we may be
looking for is all there.
The old site structure is still intact, old URI's will still work
everywhere that I can tell (except for pages that I haven't ported yet -
but that's just grunt work at this point). New page creation and source
dir mirroring all seem to work ok.
News posts get permalinks and are accessible from an aggregate page (
http://static.gimp.org/news/). We can also embed any number of news posts
on other pages as needed (more on this later). They all get a permalink
for direct linking:
which is a nice change (we can also now have an aggregate by author and all
sorts of neat-ness inherent in using Pelican to generate the site).
Translations appear to be working fine at the moment, through my limited
testing. The incorporation of the i18n_subsites plugin for Pelican now
allows the site generator to create a complete subsite for different
What's nice is that if you have a page that hasn't been translated yet,
links will still work fine, but showing the default lang (en) instead.
This can be tested by visiting the French test page, and then navigating to
any other page. You'll still be on the sub-site, but served default lang
pages if no translation exists:
